Mystery Cilo TR1

Hello everyone! I've been silently searching Bike Forums for a few years and have learned a ton, so thank you to everyone who posts information here! But I finally have a bike that I really can't find anything about online, so I'm hoping someone here might have some info.

I have a Cilo TR-1 (or maybe it is a 4, decal is too worn) that I'm trying to decide if I should just flip or restore. Just as an FYI, I run The Hartford Bicycle Studio, and custom paint bicycle regularly. If the bike is nice enough I'll try to keep it original, and if it's nothing special I give it a new paint job. This one isn't beyond salvation and doesn't have much rust, and given the parts that it came with I hesitate to send it to the sandblasters.

So here are the facts:

58cm, double butted, lugged Cilo. SunTour Cyclone rear derailleur, Campangolo (world logo) front derailleur, cottered "Solida" crankset. Rigida rims, SR hubs, Sakae quick release. "Weinnmann 610 Vainoueur 999" brakes and levers. SunTour bar-end shifters, Pivo stem, and a Wrights leather saddle. Has a serial number stamped on the top of the BB shell "71839" and no other markings other than the headtube decal and heavily worn "TR-1" decal.

I'm really curious about this bike. I'd like to know is if there's any real quality to this frame worth trying to restore everything back to original. Is this bike just a hodgepodge of good parts on an otherwise unknown frame?

Pictures in the next post...

I have owned a Cilo TR-1 for fifty years. I am confident it is one of the finest in the world. Happy to send a pic to show you what one looks like in pristine condition
