Anyone know what's the story here? I am missing something.Did Cinelli and Masi have a disagreement? I thought Masi freely used and liked Cinelli in the 70's to 80's, but sometimes he used TTT bars as seen on some earlier Masi bike pics.. My 83 Masi came with Cinelli Crit bars/stem but I don't know if they were original.Also this was an American bike, most have guessed probably not original? http://ebay.com/<blah>

"NOS 3tttSL 70s padded saddle 3t 3ttt Here is a classic 3ttt saddle, "SL" superleggera variety (alloy rails). Both Masi and Colnago were fond of these saddles in the 1970s and 1980s, because, well, they didn't like Mr. Cinelli, and so they flocked to the competition. This saddle will be happy on your 1970s Masi or Colnago, and , it'll be happy on any bike that you'd like to put it on !!! It's real sweet, basically a copy of the Unicanitor design. It is padded, high-quality suedish leather (buffalo ?) I always thought buffalos were extinct, but, go figure.
