I believe that "Lycette" was much more prominent pre WWII. I say this because I've had 4 bikes from the 20's and 30's with them. The big deal for me is the different spellings. I have saddles with Lycett and Lycetts but no Lycette.

Any furthur info would be appreciated.

The rapid change from the traditional style of saddle to the molded foam ,vinyl "dual seat" that occurred in the early 1950's must have put Lycette in a very poor business position. They would have had a large facility and workforce in place to produce a product that became obsolete over a span of only a few short years. Very few one product line companies are able to survive such a rapid change. Unfortunately I have no information on the dates or general history of Lycette .
