Hi List, the frame I bought via ebay which was looking like a late Cinell SC arrived an turned out to be a Petit Sport frame. It is somehow a Cinelli-clone sporting drilled long pointed lugs and a fastback seatstay arrangement. It has Shimano short dropouts and is completly chromed underneath a red metalic paint. It uses a 26,8 mm seatpost and a BSA BB-shell which is nicely made with foor cutouts forming a X. It came with a Shimano DA BB-set and a verx nice Suntour superbe headset. Fork ist also chromed and marked Tange, it uses a cinelli-style fork crown and drilled pointed tangs on the inside. The frame came without tubing stickers but shows signs that it once was equipped with stickers as well as on the downtube as on the fork. Frame stickers identified it as "Petit sport", a maker I have never heard of. I will post fotos later. I suspect the frame being probably from Japan but would be graceful for any piec of information or at best pictures of an ohter bike showing the correct decals as the ones on my frame are in very bad shape. Best regards
