My friend John writes of his Cinelli, "I purchased this black Cinelli in Italy in December 2009. I believe it to be a 1949 or 1950 model. It had been badly spray painted fluorescent green, but had all the correct badges and CINELLI headset. Many of the parts have been replaced as a part of the restoration. Note the "CINELLI" marked hubs, brake calipers, headset, and crankset. The bars are extremely rare Cinelli SPORT."
