    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...

    Early all-leather Selle Italia were just stamped "Italia" on the side skirt ala Brooks and Ideale.

    Thanks! I have one of those in pristine condition that came on a bike I bought from Italy, and didn't know what it was until now.
