Subject: [CR] Ideale saddle with alloy chassis on Ebay

 The saddle being auctioned currently by RHclassics really is a beauty an d it may finally break the record price for this genre of saddle.

However it still has a way to go to beat the price of a brand new Type 59   that was auctioned last week on French Ebay.. That one started out for less than 10 euros and finished up at a staggering 1310 euros.

The seller was obviously a bric-a-brac dealer who sells anything he can get his hands on..and not just bike parts. As I recall he did not know what he had in the Ideale, which came complete with its original guarantee label s till attached. The seller stated that the saddle would still be under guara ntee.

I foolishly thought that I was the only poerson to have spotted the saddle on a slightly backwater Ebay site..and again equally foolishly thought that I would steal the auction for less than twenty euros. Wish on...Norris
