As the proud owner of an authentic pre-1984 Ciocc San Cristobal, I find it sad that someone would pull a stunt like this.  Decals doth not the frame maketh.  I suspect someone either didn't know any better or is just trying to make a fast buck.  Reminds me of the old saying, "Let the buyer beware."

Someone must have thought that C was for Ciocc. Pretty funny. They should have put Cinelli logos on it...would have fetched more?

This bike on Ebay UK has Ciocc decals, but is obviously a Chesini by their logo and the Precision model name, both engraved into the head tube.  Is this just a repainted Chesini with wrong decals, or was there ever any kind of  collaborative or sub-contract relation between the two marques?  I suspect  it is just wrong decals, but I'm curious about other people's opinions, please.  Not buying ... just looking and learning.
