Lighter brown than the above, leather shiny, and for sure was a S.I. saddle. I remember it was NOS (new old stock) in a S. I. box and also had its lable.
Agree me being a fool in giving it away.
My though is, it may have been an older model (that's why in this forum)
Thanks for your suggestion though!
That's it! Model campionissimo! What I learn from it, is that it must have come in different colors. My Internet search for a purchasable one only revealed a white one from Japan. I would prefer every color - but white.
Thanks "old fat guy" - what a knowledge, 4000 posts! Since I assume they are all answers (not questions) it might rival Sheldon's contribution.
If somebody knew a source, I would appreciate it
