View Full Version : Help me with deciphering an Antares saddle?

Jul. 30, 2009, 11:41 AM
Hi everyone,

I have an Antares saddle that I would like to sell or list for consignment. My problem is that I'm unclear about the specifics of this saddle. I don't know what the numbers under the flap mean. They are as follows:

C 1N 165 L
03 837
Made in France

I'm guessing the 165 is the size (16.5) and that the 03 is 2003 (bought it in 2004 so that would make sense). "Made in France" is pretty clear obviously. Can anyone help me with the rest? I would really appreciate it!

It means it was made in 2003, was number 837 in the series. C means it's a deep seat, length 1 flap, which is slightly shorter than normal. N is normal position flap, which generally translates to "not forward". L means the seat is normal width.

Hope that helps.

So what says if it's a normal or wide tree?

If it was stamped with an 'AO' (arcade open) that would be a wide tree. :)
