I was recently lucky enough to become the next custodian of this heretofore one-owner 1985 Cinelli Supercorsa SLX built up when new with a first generation Campagnolo C-Record group. To be honest, I approached the opportunity more to sate my curiosity - it's a Cinelli! - and because, well, it was there, not because I was head over heels in love with the bike. Red isn't my color, I said to myself. I prefer Super Record, I said to myself. I like the older ones better, I said to myself. But I soon discovered that to spend time with the bike and to ride it is to fall in love with it. Quickly. In the end, it took less than 24 hours for me to be sold on it completely.
I feel very fortunate to be able to own and ride such an exquisite machine. Please enjoy these loving (and slightly awestruck) close-ups that I took.
