Up for auction is a vintage Selle Italia Turbo Special bicycle saddle. This is not a re-issue, but the real thing. The Selle Italia Turbo Special was released around 1990 and was identical to the standard Selle Italia Turbo, with the addition of the gold tone accent badges.This Italian made saddle is new and has never been ridden, making it increasingly rare. It was removed from a new bicycle and has been carefully stored indoors ever since. It is in excellent condition and looks nearly the same as it did when it rolled out of the Selle Italia factory in Asolo, Italy over 20 years ago. The Selle Italia Turbo was one of the great racing saddles, used by many cycling legends including, Bernard Hinault, Laurent Fignon, Miguel Indurain and Greg LeMond. It started a revolution in saddle design and has become a true classic. This beautiful black leather saddle is magnificent with gold tone badges at the front and rear, sitting atop brass-plated steal rails. It would be ideal for any restoration project featuring a bicycle from the late 80’s or early 90’s.
