Hmmm, maybe I should. Repaint, add some Cinelli decals and make MILLIONS!!!

No seriously, is it really the same as a Garlatti? (does look that way, but...)

Did Cinelli use them just to have something more affordable to sell?

I believe they are. Dave Martinez on CR has one and after I bought a Garlatti we had some correspondence and that was the gist of it. The Riviera was a request by a German distributor I believe and is really just a decal set put on a production bike.

Well, whatever it is and however much it should cost, the cream/robin's egg blue colorway is very nice.

I could sell my entire herd and probably still not have enough money to properly restore this one.
sigh.

That's what the credit card is for, come on, be a good American. Or dare I say it, a great American.

BTW, a very nice cambio corsa went for 80 euro on ebay.it a couple of weeks ago. A good deal can always be found.

Your size too! Sorry that I didn't tension the chain properly before photographing.
