Subject: [CR]Replacement rails for an Ideale 90SC alloy rail saddle

I purchased a cutaway version of the Ideale 90 SC saddle with alloy rails years ago, and it's the most comfortable saddle I've ever used. Unfortunately, the alloy rails were bent and fatigued before I bought it, and need to be replaced. Ideale, of course, is long-gone from making leather saddles.

I'd be happy to replace the bolt-on alloy rails with round steel or Ti ones, especially if that would provide a longer fore-aft adjustment range.

Since the leather is sound, this saddle is worth the investment to be able to use again. Any suggestions?

Thanks very much,
