One of the most desirable and hard to find items in Old School BMX, is the Harry Leary Turbo seat or saddle. These seats were made by Kashimax in the early 80s, they are covered in suede and stamped with the DiamondBack logo.
Being covered in suede meant they wore out, and it’s almost impossible to find one in a decent condition.
