Brooks Professional Saddle £46 & some retro pedals £5.50.

Details & more photos on previous post:
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=255247
Plus extra photos of saddle & pedals on:
http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/96078766@N08/

Best guess on age of saddle is 1970's.
As far as condition goes, I'd say pretty good for its age - *** there's plenty of photos across the two links so have a good look... ***
There's nothing embossed on the leather & there is a new badge included which needs to be attached.
On the one hand, the leather shows signs of wear in the sense that it is fairly dulled down in the seat area, but it actually seems pretty stiff as though there's still quite a bit of 'breaking in' to be done.
Maybe the leather's a bit thicker than newer ones - it's certainly a bit heavier than a new equivalent (spec is on link above).
I will also forward Email confirmation of authenticity from Brooks if required.
 
I'd like to get £46 (+£5 p&p - PayPal gift).
I had no idea what it's worth, so I've been watching similar on eBay for a few weeks now & that seems like an achievable price. I'll leave it on the forum for the weekend & then I'll try my luck on eBay. *** Make me a fair offer & it's yours. ***

Pedals are probably from the 90's. They're not in perfect condition but have plenty of miles left in them - again - see photos please...
Pedals are 'Olimpic', toe clips are 'Christophe' & straps are 'Lapize'.
£5.50 (+ £2.50 p&p).
As above, on eBay after the weekend... Make a close offer...

Please feel free to ask any questions & only offer to purchase if you're sure you want it. On that basis - *** sold as seen - no returns & no overseas. ***
Viewing &/or collection welcome in SE Cornwall.
Thanks for looking.

Coming up in a few weeks time I should have a Shimano 105 rear mech, a cheap Mavic wheelset & a few other bits & bobs. Details to follow...

PM's replied to: Saddle probably sold (just pending collection later in week). Pedals still available. Going on eBay if no interest this evening. Cheers...

Pedals sold - paid for & posted - thanks.
No contact from buyer for saddle (if you're reading just let me know one way or the other...) - no payment or collection - so still available I think...
