'72/'73 Rose Cinelli SC

The latest addition to the family....



She's pretty crusty, but will clean up well. I have another project in front of it in the queue (bike for my wife), but will post photos when she's had some love.

Looks like it just needs a spit and a polish.

Great looking bike Bob. Never seen one in rose before.

Gorgeous color - I may change my mind and do the Colnago in that color!

Crusty is good. You get the fun of cleaning her up and getting her presentable; it always seems to me you get to know a frame intimately when you do a really deep cleaning.

I hope you post more pics as she's definitely worthy of a close look

Thanks all! The color is indeed breathtaking, and is my new favorite. Unfortunately, she's on the small side for me. But, I'll still be able to take her for short spins and she's pretty enough to merit a bit of wall hanger status. And, someday, I hope to run into somebody who has a 60s/70s SC or B that is too big for them, and who is willing to trade. I just couldn't pass her up....

I LOVE the Colnago Dusty Rose. That, and the green, yellow, and purple are my favorite

Brakes are for suckers. And, she looks pretty fast just sitting there against the tree.

I think that's a great Cinelli color - had a buddy who owned a flawless one in that same hue.

Nice pick up, really a beauty.

Beautiful! This is my favorite color for a Cinelli, and I have heard it's Cino Cinelli's too.

Pink (Rose) is macho during the Medieval days of Knights! Really beautiful bike, complements your collection of Cinelli's!

WOW is that beautiful! I love every aspect, especially the color. Pink stands out...it's beautiful. The kind of folks who will judge you for riding it are the kinds you aren't going to want to know anyway, so I see nothing but awesome.

Also have a buddy who sold me a great-riding yellow Grandis.

I saw the pics of that Grandis, but the one I saw wasn't yellow.. It's beautiful. Of course, to keep this on topic, so's the Cinelli.
