The Cinelli alloy bars (in the classic 26.4 mm diameter), had three different versions, I think, in terms of logos. From their introduction to the late 70's perhaps, they had engraved crests on both sides, then the "intermediate" logo, with the word Cinelli on one side and a simpler model logo (vs old logo) on the other, then the newer ones with just lettering on both sides. However, AFAIK, all three generations offered 4 models, "Giro d'Italia", "Campione del Mondo", "Criterium" and "Pista" characterised different reach, drop and general shape. I believe the model number and the shape of each model remained the same throughout these three generations, except that wider widths became available in the later generations.
