Brooks B57 Swallow

Brooks B57 Swallow (circa 1950)

 About two years ago I picked up this saddle in hopes of cleaning it up and a little leather wax and some polishing went a long way. Last season it saw some miles then I put it out of commission, in hopes of it magically repairing itself. This model was Brooks way of lightening up their line in the early 50’s, aluminum backplate and stainless rails, finished with beautiful side stitching.

Recently Brooks has re-launched their site and added some beautiful pieces to their collection.
