vintage Italian saddles
What are the Italian racing saddles of the late 60's - early 70's? I know of the Cinelli/Unicanitor, but am not familiar with other brands.
Picked up an old Bottecchia, with gorgeous chrome plated head tube lugs, a few days ago. The bike is fitted with a very nice and certainly useable Dolomiti Corsa suspended leather saddle. The saddle and the bike will stay together, since I decided, almost immediately upon getting the bike, that I wanted to fully restore it. Another winter project, of which there are already too many. Anyway, the bike and the attached saddle...

Also Lambertini, San Marco, Selle Royal.
Stop reading my posts!
Early all-leather Selle Italia were just stamped "Italia" on the side skirt ala Brooks and Ideale.
