Yes, the Cinellis were all fastback. I can't remember now if the Cinelli "B" was a fastback seat stay arrangement.

It's a nice bike, looks like a nicer silver than original paint. Cinelli paint was not great - they were painted with a wiskbroom.

Remember a lot of times these frames may have hung in the workshop for some time before finishing, which could account for the mixing of "out of period" features like braze on cable guides.

Clearly the seller is looking for a high price but I think the market price for a Cinelli like this is 2800-3000 buck.
