1991 TdF TT Bike

I'm particularly wondering about Fignon's TT rig here in the prologue (just rented the videotape). I can't find a pic of it online. Perhaps someone could post one to give an idea of what I'm talking about?

The seat is bizarre. It's egg shaped, with a 1/4 section cut out to sit down on. Love to have one of these retro beasts for my club TT -- but I'm betting they were outlawed.

I'm guessing you mean the fairing-saddle, like Thierry Marie also used (to good effect at stage 1 in the '91 TdF IIRC).

Its not the same bike, but the fairing is similar.
