I'm no expert but I'm not sure it's a Cinelli frame, but a nicely built frame using Cinelli lugs and BB shell. I believe most all Cinelli frame had this unique seat stay attachment to the back of the seat lug. You might have one the fancy Cinelli built Centurion bikes though

I would agree may not be a Cinellli bike as said the seat stay attachment and rear drop treatment don't seem to match Centurion does seem like a good guess. For year I would guess mid 80's based on BB and dropouts.

Head lugs, seat lug ears and seat stay attachment all quite different to the Centurion/Cinelli pictured above.

here is the bike I bought. It had a rattle can of gold on all of it then a rattle can of silver over that. Absolutely nothing masked so it was all over everything. Appeared to me to be the "just stolen" paint job that people who steal bikes and know nothing about painting frequently do on the bikes they just stole? No decals underneath. Appears whoever painted it sanded the frame with a sandpaper way too abrasive that he has scratched the chrome in places

Slotted BB = post '84/85. Not a Centurion Project bike, they didn't have braze on front D stub and had solid BB, but did have only one bottle mount. Project and Equipe BB had only the two digit size stamped, ie: 58, and not a ZZ x ZZ format. Fork is post '83 (?). Also, head lugs not right for a Centurion/Cinelli
