Subject: [CR]20s? Lycett Saddle and ebay sales

I was very please to win this auction. Is this saddle really from the 1920s? http://ebay.com/<blah> 23.

I need it for my early 30s Sieber track bike. The Brooks B-17 Sprinter that is on it is a later saddle I think and too narrow for anything but match sprints.

I no sooner sold off $3000 of surplus stuff on ebay than I start buying "necessities" again! Generally the sales on ebay went very well but "order fulfillment" was more work than I imagined. I have found Fedex ground to be easier and cheaper than UPS for shipping. Open until 10 at night here, no box measurements or inspection etc. Definately a customer focus as opposed to the UPS monopoly approach.

I will be essentially off the list for a month or so as I start my move to the NYC area.
