If I hadn't already scored one off Ebay years ago, I'd buy yours. Mine is the most comfortable saddle seat I've had so far. But, like I said, it's a saddle-style seat. So it's probably wider than the racing seats you're used to. But I really like it. Originally I just nabbed it because it would go with the vintage look of the bike, but now I've gotten rather used to it. Back in the motorbike accident in 2010, one of the assorted injuries I sustained was a broken tailbone. It still aches during weather changes. And I still find the leather saddle comfy. Go figure.
