Does a Giotto Cinelli count? It predates Cino Cinelli bikes and were only sold for less than 2 years in the 40's before Cino bought out his brother and set up his own manufacturing, marketing. sales company.

The cranks have the Giotto Cinelli knight on a horse, as does the head badge. It has a Cinelli headset ring. It has a Cinelli Firenze stem. The bike itself used to be in the Bartali museum in the province of Florence. It had been repainted rather poorly, so I tried to bring it back to its origin. I spent a few months talking to two old-timers who used to hang out in Giotto's shop back in the day to find out what the decals looked like. After getting a graphic designer friend of mine to make over 10 different variants, the two fellows agreed that it was close to what the original decals looked like. The frame is well executed and clean. It is quite lightweight given it's 70 years old.

Those are a great way to get yourself hurt.

Probably worth a small fortune.

I have a set of Cinelli M71's, they were a pista pedal I felt way back.
I have not been following lately, I bought them in a bid lot of parts, when I looked a number of years ago the transaction prices were not impressive, like $40 on a good sale.

Yeah, nice for looks/place holders, but I wouldn't trust them in action.

I had a pair once. Didn't think the workmanship was all that great, really. Bearings in particular were stiff.

She isn't exactly period specific, but I did the best with the Campagnolo parts I could afford and find in my area.

No idea, seanallant says 1990.
Would check the SN right away, but I straightened things up and it's behind 4 bikes.

Thanks. He was not one for much negotiating. Still, I can't buy a frame and build one for our agreed price. At 55cm, it's a keeper, for sure.

Very cool. Would be great at Coppi.

@bigbossman has a China Blue one for sale. So tempting, like I need two.
