Listers and Listees,

So I see Kevin Krueger's post about the NOS Motobecane Competition saddle on ebay and review the listing and pics on Saturday morning.? In the afternoon, I'm driving past a small bike shop in Powder Springs, Georgia, stop and go in, find a used parts bin with a bunch of ratty looking saddles and misc. parts.? Dig down to the bottom and pull out a black, suede leather with perforations, Motobecane Professional saddle. In rather nice condition for residing at the bottom of a bin.? ? I quickly flashed the saddle up and offered $10 to the owner who just as quickly accepted my offer and mumbled something about how he once had a Gitane.? Later, I examined the saddle and notice it has no date stamped on the plastic underneath but looks a lot?like some of the Selle Italia models from the last 1970's.?? A private label model for Motobecane? Anybody know what Motobecane model these saddles where used with?? Let me know please.?
