Show Us Your Bikes Starting With C

So following on from the monthly colour threads, here's your chance to show us your bikes alphabetically!

It goes like this: every fortnight I'll start a new thread with a new letter in alphabetical order. Post your bikes that correspond to that letter, eg; C = Cinelli, Carlton, Ciocc. M = Mercian, Masi, Motobecane. And so on and so forth. The letter of the fortnight should correspond with the marque, not the model. For example; you could post your Tommasini Prestige in the T thread, but not in the P thread. If you're not sure, take a look at the word on your downtube. There's a grey area with people's names - Bruce Gordon, Claud Butler, etc., but I'll leave it up to the owners which thread is preferred. Make sense?

So let's see your Chesinis, Claud Butlers and Calzones...yep, you heard me.

Caletti vintage 2014. But at least it is steel, and now features a square taper BB.

Foundational Centurion that I have yet to start tuning. I have a Cilo and a Conti but those are not pic worthy.

Late 80's Ciocc. just recently "upgraded" from Shimano 600 EX to first generation Campagnolo Chorus. I just couldn't stand the thought of that Japanese componentry on this Italian bike.

'42 ccm. One cable operated drum brake and it locks up with ease.

If the cable breaks, the bike won't brake and maybe I'll break?

Hard to tell, but it's a Ciocc. Presently rattle-canned white, in storage, to be built sometime this year. Also a Designer '84 in storage.
