Here's a crap cell phone shot of my early 60s SC. Since then, I've switched the brakes to Universal 61s. It sports a fairly poor repaint that was performed at least 35 years ago, according to the previous owner. So, it least it's semi-period correct repaint

One wonders how a brand or frame that's been made for pretty much 40 years gets so rare.
I don't mean the pista, maybe, but isn't the SC one of the longest running production runs in bikes?
Outside of China, maybe?

I've heard they only made about 350 in the busiest year, and in Olympic years you couldn't get one at all. If true, maybe that's why.

Cinelli made the bulk of their sales with handlebars, stems and lugs that they sold to other builders, so kept their output of bikes to a minimum as to not upset the builders. If you were a builder would you buy parts from your competition?

So many beauties in this thread, but this one takes my breath away.

I've only seen this color scheme once before on a Cinelli in Bayern.

Any special story with this scheme?
