Anyone know where to buy NOS Flite saddles?desmo

I want to find an older model standard Flite in a solid color. No embroidery, patches, vents, etc. White, Red, or Celeste, is what I'm after. Would realy like to find a new one but if anybody has a really clean used one along these lines I'd be interested.

Excel sells a new plain black perforated flite for $60. If you're interested check out excelsports. (Yes, it's not NOS)
ah yes, no perforated either.desmo

Sorry, couldn't think of the word earlier and used "vents", but I want the completely smooth one. Actually already have a black one I can use, but would like the other colors. Thanks anyway though.
Maybe Selle San Marco for Celeste. Search 'flite' on E-bay.nmSpunout

Ditto - Why did they ever change 'em anyway? (nm)B2

eBay would be your best option, I would think. Just do a search in the cycling section for Selle or Flite. You might have to search for a while, but you'll find one. I bought a San Marco Regal that way after Excelsports quit importing the plain, non-stitched ones (which they have since started carrying again).

eBay is a great place to find and sell saddles. So many people buy new bikes with saddles they hate, or buy a bunch of saddles trying to find the one that fits, that there is usually a steady stream of NOS or lightly used saddles for sale. I've got a Regal ti, a Brooks Swift ti, and a Flite Gel that I plan to sell as soon as I get around to taking photos of them.
I can get them in BLACKcroll-duraace
