I have 4 of Rudi's restored saddles, including one on my Zero bike:


photo shamelessly stolen from @djkashuba, but it is my saddle. Note the custom stamp that Rudi made for me

Absolutely amazing how he figured out how to restore these wonderful saddles. If any of my Brooks or my Ideal saddle ever fails I will be looking him up.
