Carbon Fibre Selle Italia Flite Evolution, Campy pedals

Acquired these two things recently. The Flite isn't in the best shape, but I could see it being collectable or something. There's one for $180 on ebay, but mine's got cracks and stuff.




Then some Campy pedals that look like Super Records, but I don't know anything about them. Considering the bike they came off it wouldn't surprise me. Also they have Christophe clips and Campy toe straps. One dust cap is an MKS and the other is missing, however.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Pretty saddle. How much does it weigh?

No idea, internet says 165g. It's not even that uncomfortable, the carbon has some give and of course the shape is proven. A little like a brooks really, except with sharp plastic edges.

Awesome looking saddle but cracked carbon is a value killer. I wouldn't expect it to go for more than $75, probably around $50. The one on ebay is also the BIN price and so far no one has bought it.

I wonder if you can repair that saddle's cracked edges with a bit of epoxy resin and some CF material (you can get CF from plastic material sellers like TAP Plastics). It shouldn't be that different from repairing fiberglass and I don't think you have to vaccum bag it as you are not really forming a whole new shape, just touching up a little damage at the edges, although you will have to manually work the resin into the weave of the additional material.

I remember that those saddles were notorious for cracking. One of the bike mags had one crack while they were testing it.

The places where two of the cracks are at the back are where the shell sort of pivots when you put weight on it. Functionally, it seems like not an issue. The thing might even be more comfortable post-cracking. Thanks guys, I'm gonna put it on the craigslist for an OBO price and see what happens. Forgot to add the photo of the campy pedals, so here it is:



One dustcap is missing, the other is an MKS. I might rebuild the pedals and snag another MKS dustcap just so they match and all.
