Saddle repair

The rail on my old Brooks B17 has broken. I have a similarly broken Lepper Voyager. Is there anybody who could do a repair?

You can send your Brooks saddle with a covering note to Brooks the manufacturer at Downing Street, Smethwick B66 2PA, where the treasured upper will be riveted to a new frame for around £50. I’m unaware of a similar service for Lepper saddle owners, but if the frame is steel it should be possible for a framebuilder to braze it to make at least a short term repair.
