Subject: [CR]Complete history of Ideale saddles


I have seen the classicrendzvous site, and read Sheldon's but they are both skimpy.

I'd like to know more about Ideale saddles. Some basics:

-When did they go out of business? -What was their heyday?

-Were there classic popular models ala B-17.

-In the later years what was the complete range of models?

-Spring models?

Are there any secret website with all the history that I haven't found?
