Can anyone Cinelli-istas out there give me a rough guide as to which
year Cinelli stopped using fender eyelets in their drop-outs for the SC.
My 1972 doesnt have them but my 1958 does, as does my Mod B. I have a
jaw dropping project where I am using what seems to be lugs from a 1967
SC (number accodring to the Cinelli registry) but has the three holes
drilled in the lugs which are slightly later in period. Regardless, I
have both types of drop-outs on hand, with and without eyelets, and
would like to get a handle on what would be appropriate for this year.
This project started as a SC frame ready to be scrapped in the US, I
bought it, had the seller slice and dice the frame into a small box of
tubes and lugs and posted to me for nickels and dimes. Out of this pile
of bits I hope to get a beautiful addition to the stable and also show
that there is another way of getting cheap freight to Australia. Keep
your hacksaw handy and blade sharp!
Oh yes folks, Masi, Maasi, Olmo and Gios Brooklyn decals ready soon.
