I'm pretty sure a Fujita saddle came on my Proteus, which was made in the mid-70's. The bike originally had a mixture of Campy and high quality Japanese components. The first thing to fail on it was the saddle; it was comfortable enough after it broke me in but one of the steel rails fractured after a few years - and that's when I was 20 pounds lighter. No doubt it was an isolated bad apple but my Brooks saddle has held up a lot longer.
