Subject: [CR] Question about Premier SL220 saddle


Good day all,

I have a very nice (NOS) Italian saddle with the inspiring name Premier SL220. The 220 indicates the weight, which, on my scales, is 227 grams. Pretty light for a vintage saddle I'd say. It has the classic Cinelli Unicanitor shape, albeit somewhat slimmer. It has alloy rails and perforated plastic base, covered with black suede.

Does anyone know what the vintage is of this saddle? I'd like to put it on my '72 Presto, which is becoming somewhat of a half-hearted lightweight project, with milled brake calipers and such. But then i would like the saddle to be about the same age.

Any info is welcomed, I'd also like to know more about this saddle, who made it, was it any good, etc. Googling didn't help.
