Got an Antique Bike about two or three years ago. It is an Old Raleigh Single Speed in Burgundy Red in good condition. I looked up the Sheldon Brown Site and discovered it was an 1958 Raleigh. Seems it was three speed once, so I will try and get a three sp Wheel or Hub plus Cable and 3 spd Control Lever.

The Saddle was worn out and flattened and I had to put Plastic under it to soften the ride. But it hurt the inside of my Thighs. I did not think I could get a Saddle with the old fashioned fitting easily without ordering it from Brooks. But Cycleways in Parnell St D1 had them in stock. So I was really Chuffed ,a bit of comfort at last no sore Arse anymore. I wanted one in brown . The Assistant searched downstairs and in the front Window, none in brown. He said I could order one in brown for you I said no it is alright I will settle for black.

I did not feel my Posterior would last much longer on the old Saddle so accepted the black one. A beautiful Brooks B66 in black with Sprung Suspension. They give you a Spanner and a little pack of Proofide Polish to help soften it ,your first Application then you buy more Polish to continue after the first 100km then another after a further 100km I had great fun taking off the old Saddle and putting on the new one. It looks great although a bit hard,might have to adjust the Nose up a Spidgin as there is a slight tendency to slip forward on it. Sorry no Photographs yet.
