    cinelli bar: model?

    i was under the impression that an upright-style
    bar from cinelli existed and i finally saw one:



    can anyone tell me the model/name of this bar?

    ...and does anyone have one with which they would part?

    Cinelli stem, doesn't mean that it is a Cinelli bar. Cinelli had a steel one piece stem/bar/brake lever combo that was that shape in the late 50's early 60's but I have only seen a picture.

    i knew someone would say that... the bars are cinelli,
    but i wasn't able to get a macro shot with my mobile camera.

    ...in my internet research i saw that one piece job:

    Is the bar shown in the photo mounted upside-down in relation to the clamp sleeve logo?

    I seem to make out the logo sitting at the underside of the sleeve.

    Cinelli Priest, designed 1980 on demand of Pope John Paul II for his white Colnago.
    True, I swear by the lord!
    Very rare though.

    Could they be bullhorns mounted backwards? This discussion gave me the lightbulb.

    You did not believe [me], son?

    O.K.,
    look HERE for "priest bars" in general
    ... and ...
    look HERE for another example of this "Cinelli Priest" model.

    C?

    i also found a link confirming the pope/colnago
    story in connection with the priest bars:

    "...the Pope requested a sports type bike with regular
    flat handlebars so we built him one, a white one."
    source

    edit: ...thank you vintageR for the knowledge.
