Please help identify 80's Cinelli

Hi eveyone
My bike has had a little accident and now the frame is less than straight. I would like to track down the exact model i have if possible, so that i can get the correct tubing to replace the bent pieces etc. The frame is very light and this leads me to believe i have relatively good model however i can't be sure. There is Cinelli stamped in the bottom bracket and campagnolo in the rear hangers although there is no serial number i can make out. i bought the bike in Holland so if there are specific dutch models maybe this can help. I think the lugs are Prugnat 62 D, from what i can tell from internet pictures. The thing which i am finding hardest to track down in my search is pictures of bikes with brazed on brake cable hangers underneath the top tube.

So if any of you eagled eyed can help, I'd really appreciate it.

I just found that i cannot link the photos here as i don't have enough posts. The pictures are on tumblr under the name: keithaton

I searched tumblr and came up empty. Can you paste the link to the album?

Other helpful info will be seat post size. If you stick your finger into the bottom of the steering tube on the fork, do you feel in spiral ridges? Likewise if you do the same in the seat tube and down tube through the bottom bracket she'll do you feel any ridges? Those are found with Columbus SL and SLX tubing respectively.

keithaton or keithatron?

EDIT - keithatron.







I don't believe your bike is a Cinelli. Cinelli sold those bottom bracket shells to many framebuilders, including amateurs like me.

Welcome to the forums. A Cinelli bottom bracket shell does not necessarily indicate a Cinelli manufatured frame. Cinelli frame fittings were used by many builders.

There are a couple of methods to identify the tubeset but given that the frame needs repart anyway, my approach would be to remove the paint. Most tubesets have the manufacturer's logo stamped on one end, so the builder knows which end to cut, without shortening the wrong butt. Often, the stamping will include the grade/gauge of the tube. This allows a more exact identification, even in cases where builders may have used a mixed tubeset.

Thanks everyone. I will have the paint removed and investigate further. And double check inside the frame to look for the rigdes. All you're help is really appreciated

The racing number tag hanger behind the head tube, under the top tube is a good sign.
It most likely mean that couldbe a "team replica" of some sort, if the hanger came from the factory and not added later.

I should have mentioned in my first post that, while I could be mistaken, I don't believe Cinelli ever used those Prugnat 62/D lugs.
