I also have three of the plain black torbo saddles from the early 80's. I believe in the plain black saddle there were two models. One was a little more streamlined with a little less padding and obviously a little lighter. Both very comfortable and durable. I still use mine on three of my bikes. I also have two rolls saddles with the fancy gold accents. I do believe they came out with them first with Turbo copying them soon after.
