Selle Royal Superleggero
Selle Royal saddle, special edition for Gazelle. Showed up in Gazelle's 1981 catalogue on a beautiful Reynolds 753 bicycle. Like Cinelli Unicanitor, it's a plastic shell with a padded leather cover. The rails, however, are aluminium, thus super lightweight or superleggero. I never had the opportunity to ride this kind of saddle, even not during my days at Gazelle. Or, maybe I had, but there was plenty other stuff to use. And first I have to get myself a Gazelle frame set to do this saddle any justice. Until then, it will stay NOS.
