General Information
Wittkop were the German equivalent of Ideale or Brooks, making high-quality leather saddles for makes like NSU, Porsche (yes, Porsche made bicycles, as well as autos) Adler, Hercules etc.. I cannot be certain of the age, as I can’t see the exact equivalent in any of the catalogues I’ve consulted. But I believe this would have been made in the 1960s, before Wittkop turned over to plastic saddles in the 1970s. It’s Wittkop’s equivalent to a Brooks Conquest or B66, with a four-wire frame and two coil springs at the rear. So it’s really for long-distance touring.
