The B18 is a thing of beauty, featuring a detailed filigree design embossed into the top.
The B18 is a double-rail saddleThese use a special clamp (included) for old-style "pipe-type" seatposts.
To use them with modern "microadjusting" seatposts, you need a "Seat Sandwich"
The B18 features bag loops to permit the use of a traditional English-style touring bag.
Current production has black frames.
