This bike was traded to me by another CR lister who picked it up in Italy. It was sold to him there as a retired UVI team bike. Could that be why it's chrome-less? It's hard to see in these photos, but the head badge is blue, for that reason I was told it was a 1960 or earlier frame. Any thoughts folks? I also have an original Cinelli decal set... to resotre or not to restore..? http://www.flickr.com/photos/19321250@N05/sets/72157623586822942/ Nathan CozzolinoSan Francisco, California
