All, Original Cinelli track bars w/o engravings were supplied to Schwinn in the 60's-70's. But even those will have on the right bar end a two digit # which will delineate which model she is. #14 and 19 were two, I forget the third (was their a third?). Trackies are known to chop off the last 3/4 to 1 inch or so as to not smash the area just above the knee when jump'n down the banks. So iffin their cut off, even that might not be there. But you'll see the hack marks and rusty ends. There was a good copy out there in the 70's and even that was GOOD!
