Iscaselle Giro d'Italia

This is one of the nicest bike saddles around, in my opinion. I remember that it came out (somewhere late 1980s), put it on my Gazelle road bike, but my bum didn't like it. I worked for a bike company, got most of my stuff for free, and could assemble another new saddle soon after.
The shape is extremely round. Perhaps some people like it, but I didn't. I've seen very few (or maybe nothing at all) in the pelotons meanwhile, so more riders had the same opinion. Another reason could be that Iscaselle was never one of the most popular saddle brands. And racers are extremely brand aware/sensitive.
I bought this saddle from Poland (!), pretty new and hardly used (if ever), so the condition is very nice. I wanted to dye the leather upper a bit more black, since is coloured a bit brown during the years. I had done this before with Rolls and Cinelli Unicanitor saddles, so I knew that it would be okay.
However, I spilled some leather dye on the metal pieces and especially on the back part it was hard to remove it. When I tried white spirit, Silvo silver polish and Belgom Alu, the "gold" colour started to come off, but the black paint remained.
Just a warning in case someone else is trying to do the same...
