I also have a crusty Cionoli...titanium saddle...I think I mispelled that a bit. but it's basically hard plastic with no padding. I glued a leather top to it...left it out in the rain and it shrunk like an antique baseball glove all crusty.

Ironically this addle despite lack of pads is fairly comfy. I do believe I am honestly going to go the ultimate dork route and go fetch the vintage Avocet touring if it is still at the co op...and I'll demand a cheap price since I had to re-do my shift cables that I paid them for.
Nothing dorky about those avocets...great saddles.
