It's not flashy, no fancy paint or decals, just the same old classic shape that I love. Had one of those on my first roadie years ago and just has to get one for the new ride. The curvy shape works very well for me. The back edge rises up just slightly and gives you something to lean back on during hill climbs. The classic lines are really eye catching, at least to me anyways! I went with the white saddle to finish off the bike with a nice classy look. It takes a little while to break in the leather to your backside but after a few hundred miles it is just like your favorite old leather chair.
