This has to be one of the rarest saddles Brooks ever made I think. The post war B27, B37, B47, B57 series made for a couple of years in the 1950s with aluminium cantleplates and stainless rails are all quite rare but not nothing like this particular Brooks. Next week I will have an almost unused B37 on Ebay. Other very rare Brooks saddles are the various B18 models with twin wire undercarriage and the B19 which was like a long B17 standard and intended for long distance riding according to Brooks.
