Mike Zanconato emailed me a while back and asked if I could do a Flite for him in white faux leather. He wanted all the foam removed and the cover put directly on the saddle base. I suggested a 1/8″ thick layer of padding to smooth things out. Mike agreed and he sent me FOUR Flites, all virtually brand new. I just got a few pics of the bike with one of the saddles installed and it’s fantastic (just like all of Mike’s other bikes)!
If you like traditional steel frames with horizontal top tubes and pristine panel paint jobs, then you could do a lot worse than talking to Mike.
