Cinelli Model 64 handlebar
I'm turning to you for help with my search as I have been very impressed with the help that you have given each other and the extensive experience and resources that you possess.
I am looking for a Cinelli model 64 Giro D’Italia handlebar in 42 cm width. My 1966 Paramount P13, which I bought new while living in Wisconsin, was recently restored with the superb help of the folks at Circle A Cycles in Providence, RI. Although the bike rides like new, I am finding the original 38 cm model 64 bars too narrow in terms of comfort and balance, which is likely due to my age as well as not riding for over 35 years until 2006.
Is there anyone out there who would be willing to part with and sell me a 42 cm bar? I would appreciate as nice a handlebar as possible, that is one which is structurally strong and free of dents, etc., and with any deep scratching on the exposed areas of the bar. If interested, I would be very willing to include my 38 cm bars in the sale. My bar is beautiful, highly polished on the exposed part, free of damage or scratching, and a true vintage gem. It has the early double “Mod.Giro D’Italia” imprints inscribed on each side of the center sleeve.
Your help in obtaining this bar would be deeply appreciated.
