Lycett or Lycetts?

Postby Blackcat » Wed Sep 27, 2017 11:20 am

My 47 G80 has an old single Lycett seat with a name plate badge on the rear of the saddle, which says "Lycetts". Does anyone know why all the new Lycett single M/C seats have a "Lycett" badge (without the S)? Is the badge with the "S" a pre war/ early post war badge and when did they drop the "S"?

Pre war and post war literature all refers to Lycett saddles, neither Lycetts. Could the Lycetts be copies trying not to offend copy write.

I've got a 1950s Raleigh pushbike that has a 'Lycetts' saddle. It measures 10" front to back and I imagine your saddle is larger than that. Cheers. Bruce.

I have not looked at my Saddles. Anyone got a saddle with Lycett badge on it?? If you search Lycett saddles all pic's seem to have Lycett badge. Maybe they used the name to Lycett's & Lycett

My 1946 G3 has a quite old looking badge that clearly says Lycetts.
