    Vintage 1980's Selle Royal Superleggero Saddle

    On Tuesday I was on Nashbar.com and purchased a NOS vintage Selle Royal Superleggero Saddle for $19. For those who want a comfortable and period correct seat and can’t find an NOS Avocet Touring, this is a great choice. I don’t think they came OEM on any bikes back then, but they were popular in the aftermarket world. I used them up until the mid 80’s when I wore mine out and had to settle for others. Anyways there are far more comfortable seats out there now, but 1980’s NOS seats are hard to come by.

    By no means am I trying to promote the sale of these seats nor do I endorse Nashbar. But I haven't seen these saddles since 1985 when they were discontinued and it would be a disservice if didn’t tell the people who might benefit the most with this information.

    Cheers
    Ron

    Definately not a waste of time IMO.

    Thanks for the heads up by the way.

    I received my Selle Royal seat today from Nashbar. It is an imitation of the original and is a piece of junk. It is not even leather but a really cheap vinyl. Forget about my excitement. It turned into disappointment.

    Even if thos Selle Royal didn't work, Nashbar often has sweet NOS saddles. After the 90's parts thread I re-checked the availability of Selle Italia Super Turbo saddles and ended up order two for $13.50 each. Can't beat that.
