Wyndham,

With respect to those specifications apropos a 1975 Eisentraut Limited, I offer for your consideration the following link:

As for introduction dates specific to various the Selle San Marco saddles, at least with regard to the U.S. market, the Concor appeared in 1978, the Rolls in 1982, and I believe that I purchased my first Regal Girardi (...originally having an oversized alloy substructure where the rails are decidedly NOT round, but rather somewhat flattened with bulging sides which made this version incompatible with certain seat posts - at least without modification) in the Spring of 1984, which should be pretty darn close to their first appearing for sale to the general public.

I'd be grateful for pointers towards any online timelines for saddles.

Or, suggestions for the range of appropriate saddles for the following:

1975 Eisentraut Limited

1982 Shimano Dura Ace AX bike - What else other than Kashimax or Concor would be right for this?

And... probably off-topic - what date were the Selle San Marco Rolls and/or the Girardi Regal introduced?

Many thanks,
