Not a showpiece, but a lovely rider.

Just wanted to leave you two pics of my two CILO SWISS workhorses:

The blue one is made of Tretubi Aelle, the red one sports a 531 frame.
Both of them are used regularly for my training rides.

Only very recently, I built up another blue CILO with Aelle tubing for my occasional inner-city rides:

Hi, I took a few pictures of my ‘91 Cilo during a recent refit. It’s Columbus SLX with full Shimano 7410 Dura Ace. Hope you don’t mind the pictures.

Received in a swap deal. Early to mid 80s? Model?

(Yes, the fenders have been removed)

My Florida ride - (without any significant tools)
I just got done as this was the week of leaks! Long story short this Cilo was a pester for the rear tire not wanting to keep inflated Yeah for the past 5 days I would go out for my morning ride and - Yep the rear tire was FLAT!!!!!!
Problem solved today - trip to the Western Bike shop in Naples Florida - NEW tubes and tires! Did not have what I wanted but they will work!
So this is my 1983 CILO - great ride and hope to take it for a spin tomorrow.
