The frame is older than the 70's in my opinion. A certain amount of dama ge was caused by the rechrome, the repaint isn't helping much. It might be a Model B (it's NOT a proper Special or Super Coursa) if it's a genui ne Cinelli. It looks a little like a Windsor Pro, but again not quite. I guess is a poorly restored Mod. B.

Any chance at all this is what it purports to be? So many details look wrong: Fork crown, seat cluster, drop-out and fork end brazing, general quality of construction. It says it's a repaint.

Did Cinelli quality ever actually plunge to this dismal level at any time in the '70s? Or any other time?
