Gutted just missed out on a black Turbo on eBay with the neon green underside thanks to AOL dropping out this evening :(

Don't suppose anyone has got one?

Drop me a line with pics if poss, don't mind an all black one either.

Many thanks

Jussa :D

All black turbos are available from OnOne, but I don't know if they're different to vintage ones?

Cheers, I had looked at new ones, but as the bike is worn and carries a lot of patina thought a NOS one would look a bit outa place, so ideally a slightly used/worn saddle was preferred choice :)

Thanks anyway it's an option of my search is futile :)

this might sound daft... A light sanding with a fine grade sandpaper/wet and dry followed by a quick buff with boot polish will give it a used look with about 5 mins.

If it were me, that'd be a safer bet than a 2nd hand saddle.


That said, I also get a bit weird about fitting 'new' bits when I'd happily fit identical NOS bits. :facepalm:
