The Cinelli for children, the Piccolo model, appeared in this catalog. Here is an example of one in size 44cm. It appears to have the old style logo in the oval on the downtube (as seen here), and has the chrome bands on the seat tube. Photographed in the "as found" state and equipped with Magistroni crankset, Gian Robert rear derailleur, Simplex shifter, Cinelli Milano stem, and NISI rims

Bike Stand

A reader writes, "I bought 5 all chrome double bike stands from a bike shop in the north of England that was closing down, they all have Cinelli Milano decals on them. The hooks are designed to support steel diameter horizontal top tubes. The owner said he bought them from Italy in the 1970s or 1980s." Anyone familiar with these? Leave a comment.
