I managed to pick up a lovely tidy sdg saddle which sadly I don't know what model it is or what it's worth. Any help would be great

I'm not exactly sure but they only model name that springs to mind is the SDG 'Bel-Air' -- I know they made that model, w/ leopard print, for sometime in the mid-2000's, if my memory serves... Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Yeah I could only find bel air's to. But it's a long in length saddle which leads me to know its older. It's plastic stamped at number 2 indicating February but its indicated with the letter K which should I guess be the year but k to me isn't a year! Haha

They did do a model called the S2000, but I can't find any images other than plain colours. Also, the curve on the rear corners doesn't look quite the same. The panel shapes are almost identical to the BelAir, though - maybe just a very early run?

Is it an SDG BIGBOY? I`ve got one in the garage & its saved my crown jewels from a bad landing many times. Google images throws up a few pictures. Looks the same size & shape to me. I had it from new on my San Andreas DHS round about 1999-2000.
