Coolio's

I once owned a Fujita Y.F.C. Seamless saddle (that's what it had stamped on the sides !!!). Basically a Cinelli Unicanitor copy and a beautiful one. Suede finish, chrome rails, perfect shape and excellent detailing. In my opinion very much worth as much as the "original". Would be perfect atop any bike, especially a 3Rensho.
