His dad was getting his Porsche painted, so the painter offered to do the bike at the same time. He added a dash of black to tone it down and called it good. He also swapped out the Unicanitor (which he also gave me) for the Brooks Pro, put on yellow bar tape, then never rode it much.

I know the color is not stock, but it is part of the early history of the bike, so it stays.

how many other Cinelli SCís are painted this color!
I get it, totally agree, unique history is all good, very cool.
