It's 58.5 c-t. The stem is some later 3ttt job with an allen key.It is that same bike ,that picture was taken while i was still tearing it down, the bar end was on my bench. It will go back on.

As far as my plans go, I am going to give it a sympathetic refurbishment, i.e. no paint and keep as many parts as I think are original. Then I'll keep it till my plans change. I am in the middle of a house renovation right now so nothing is happening quickly.
The frame came from a fairly well know vintage bike guy in Colarado and he told me that Brian Baylis did the paint so you have a good eye! I like the color as well, it is different but works well on an older Cinelli.
