Is this a covetted saddle or a dime a dozen? I like this saddle alot, it's comfortable, and classy, but I really don't need it and it deserves a better home. Do you think it will fetch a good price on ebay, because if not, I minus well keep it.

No ti rails? No carbon shell? No taint groove? No embroidery? No gel? No way!
No serious cyclists would possibly consider buying any saddle that weighs over 200 grams. Maybe if you lied about it's weight.....

sweet saddle. i have a white rolls that i love on my old steel bike, but the corners are badly scuffed up. if you're interested in selling it, email me at geckotb_AT_criticalmass.com. the wife is getting really tired of me buying bike stuff but i might be able to slip one more thing in the house...
Sprito might like this, hold onto it, looks so special! nmSpunout

I watch the saddle ads on ebay for classic saddles.
I saw a high bid for a NOS San Marco Regal saddle at $75.00 (don't know what the closing bid was). You can buy a brand new Regal with ti rails for $65.00.

I imagine if you worded your ad right there would be a lot of bidding.

I'd be interested myself, but I stick to black saddles.

If geckotb does not make a purchase, it would go on ebay, even though it is used.

Or just stick the thing on your bike and ride it. The Rolls is one fine saddle...

P.S.
I don't think it's 'a dime a dozen' as I have never seen one offered for sale before.
I think ebay tootronracer
