Does anyone know what saddle featured in the classic Yellow Pages advert? I'm looking for something sharp looking from the 80's.

The saddle I would guess was a Brooks swallow ? Mind you the advert was from the early 70's I think :)

That'll be nearly 30 years of even more modern stuff occuring since!
Where does "retro" begin and end by the way. At some point the stuff from within your own lifetime becomes retro stuff I've found.
