This came on a frame I bought last year. Actually rides comfy. I'm afraid it won't last if I put too many miles on it though.

Rudi would be able to ID it, if anyone can.

Keep in mind that marking may be name of a bicycle rather than a saddle brand. Just a possibility.

I think that's a Sofatti Professional saddle. Spanish.

Thanks @rhm!

IIRC the Sofatti badge , also written Soffatti, issues from the same source as Arius.

"Rudy will know!"




Suggestion -

you might try lightly rolling some paint or ink onto the marking and then pressing it to a piece of paper. this may make it somewhat easier to read.
