Beautiful bike, gorgeous color and I really like your component choices. As I look at the frame, it appears to be a carbon copy (do we still say such things?) of the CT.

You could buy a gold plated Colnago made expressly for the Pope for about $4K less. I am at a loss what makes this track frame worth so much. It's limited numbers do not account for the high price.

Wino, aren't these 1980's Centurion's the best? I am a pretty fanatic Fuji collector but the better Centurion bikes give Fuji a run for their money. I hope none of my Fuji friends see this post.

The gold frame above has no fewer than six Cinelli embossed logos; BB, two stay caps, two on the fork lug and one rear brake bridge. BTW, how are you certain your frame was not made by Cinelli?
