Hi Brad. If you want to post photos, you will need to upload them somewhere on the internet (like picasa, flickr, mobile me, dropbox, etc) so that they are viewable here. The ones you have tried to post are located on your home computer.

Oh, for some reason I thought you had to be a paid member to use that. Well, if not, that would work just as well.

I have watched "The Matrix" enough times to be able to actually read the code, and that definitely looks like a Cinelli.

I don't know, looks like a chinese knockoff to me, but then I might be reading the encryption wrong.

"sjk054/My%" is clearly the famous Cinelli seat cluster.

Hard to tell from the photos - does it have a full-sloping fork crown.

The vertical dropouts strike me as a bit odd.

I don't know if it's a Cinelli, but it looks like a very nice bike to me. Do you have an overall picture?

Agree that the Raysports I've seen have the "R" cutout in the BB shell - and that looks like a 70's Cinelli shell to me - though they did have the vertical rear drops. And if the post is 26.8, that's a pretty big clue. I think it's a Cinelli, though I haven't been able to track one down pics of one with vertical rear dropouts.

I haven't seen them on a 70's Cinelli. Doesn't mean Cinelli didn't build some.

That bike spent last week on the Atlanta CL identified as a Windsor. The CL poster told me he acquired it in LA (lower Alabama) and that the Alabama owner claimed long ownership, with personal knowledge of it being a Windsor with original paint or decals removed to fully expose chrome years ago.

Cinelli or Windsor, I don't know; this part of the story may be germane to arriving to a conclusive ID.

Windsors of course did not have full-sloping crowns or 26.8 posts.

I believe they also lacked the little cutout in the side of the seatlug, and had different SN placement from the OP's bike.

A better pic of the fork crown might help - looks like the Cinelli version, but the pics are so poor ...

Actually, Windsor's did have 26.8, Cinelli should have 26.2 or 27.2. My Windsor Pro was all chrome under paint, and 26.8 post. But no sloping crown or vertical dropouts. This one is a mystery...

Agree - but there's the bottom bracket issue. Plus, on the Raysports I've seen with the vertical dropouts, the junctions are done differently - they're beveled and not quite as nicely executed.
