Oh yeah, I had @rhm do an Olmo saddle for me and it is cool. Of course, no pics so maybe it didn't happen,

I've got 3 RHM's - much thicker leather than original, a bit longer to break in, but will last a lot longer.

One of mine was like that, the other two need a few hundred miles to break in to my posterior. The metal bits underneath from the donor saddles were different, which was probably most of the difference.

+1 here. Excellent work. This is an early 50s B66 restoration he did for me. What a great resource for us C&Vers. Thanks again @rhm

Did the original saddle have that stamp, or did Rudi use his usual flair for creating another one-off?

+14. Mine is astounding.
It's currently on a trainer that is now on the 4th stage of the 2016 TdF.

I have another saddle frame I'm sending him.
He does so much with so little, I now expect him to do everything with nothing.

It's really amazing when I think about it. Each one is different, and to an extent, he has to invent something each time.
