I'm curious to see a bigger picture, looks like a trusted workhorse. Regarding the Turbo: those saddles are pretty popular in some circles, it seems. I was able to trade an old turbo for a nice, newer lightweight saddle.

Additionally, I have heard that Selle Italia has recently reissued though, which may bring demand for the old ones down a little: http://hkfixed.blogspot.com/2009/08/tur...
