Old Saddle Question...(2 posts)

Old Saddle Question...SenorPedro

I recently picked this saddle off of an old late 60's or early 70's Puegeot 10 speed. Itis quite comfortable and in good condition, I just don't know anything about it.

It reads "ADGA" across the top, "La Chantillonaise Farbrication Francaise" under that with "Cuir" and "28A" also. In a small oval near the nose it reads "crupoi." Features the riveted construction like a Brooks, has saddle bag tabs on the back, and aluminum rails which seems strange to me for the age.

If any of you know anything about this saddle it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot,

Pedro

a cheap leather saddle used on low end Peugeots in the early 70's. Ideale was made not unlike brooks with thick high grade leather and agdas were made with thinner lower grade leather that was prone to short life spans. If you don't get it wet and it's little used it should be fine.
