I bought secondhand a new, unridden Berthoud "touring" saddle with steel rails ("Aspin" model) with the "natural" (tan) finish. It was a "second" from Rene Herse Bicycles because it has a faint line on it. I think it looks fine.

I did not apply Proofhide or anything else to soften the leather. It's still pretty much rock-hard and hasn't conformed to any particular anatomy.

I'm sticking with my Brooks Pros.

Looks like this goes for $199 new. I paid $179 shipped and used it sparingly (100 miles or less).

$150 shipped?

Here you go. Looks like I scuffed it a bit at some point too.
