Saddle Id: Master Guilla???

Has anyone ever seen or know anything about this saddle? Its marked "Guilla" on the nose and "Master" on the rear. On the underside it says Made in Spain. My searches on the internet have come up empty. Thanks in advance for any help.

Never heard of "Guillia" but that looks very much like a Selle Italia "Mundialita" (specially with the suede cover on it) saddle which was installed as OEM on mid level Peugeots in the 80's. I believe that it was a step down version of the Turbo, but this one's most likely just a copy of the Turbo by yet another little known maker from Spain (Unless the "Guilla" was brand of bike and this is a Turbo based saddle made for them by Selle Italia to put on their bikes).
That's a real nice saddle, and could put a unique touch into an 80's C&V build-up.

Thanks for the replay Chombi. Hopefully I can find some definite info on it. Until then it will remain unknown!

I had a saddle just like yours on my Crescent mid-level racing bike, it was the stock saddle. The bike was from 1987-88. Most likely used as an OEM saddle on mid level bikes, or at least that would be my guess. Still, it's a nice saddle I think!

Just found this topic, I am writing from Spain. You see those saddles around here, I have the same saddle in an older Macario bike I recently bought, my first road bike. I thought it was an Italian saddle, I guess I never bothered to look under it!
