    Yet another mystery saddle

    No markings anywhere on the underside-suede topping with a tensioning bolt!?! May have been some kind of oval designation on the side.....any guesses, or does anyone have anything lke this to compare? Wondering about that bolt....seems overkill just for leather top on plastic base.

    I have a saddle very much like that. It's a BMX saddle, I think. Mine has an oval stamp on the side, which says something like "made exclusively for ZEUS," but no country of origin, date stamp, etc.

    Looks like an Arius Gran Carrera. I have an Arius Imperator. Both have suede covers on plastic shells. And the Gran Carrera does have an oval logo on the side.

    The Spanish company "Arius" made saddles for Zeus.
