From the twilight of Cinelli's golden era, perhaps?

Too bad it's a restoration and not original. Is a Cinelli this late still somthing to covet? When were they "watered down" enough to become irrelevant( I remember Nashbar selling Cinellis in the mid-80's)? Also, I'm surprised to see lever and bottle bosses given Cino's feelings about such things (at least according to legend). Or had silver been discovered by this time? Does anyone else find it sad to view the empty husk that the Cinelli name has become? Don't mean to offend, but I find it difficult to stomach the latest offerings.
