This day comes sooner then I would have hoped, but the kid's school wants money. The bike I just shared photos of a couple weeks ago is now for sale. It's a 1959(ish) Cinelli pista that measures 56cm ctt. It was sold to the last owner in Italy as a retired UVI team bike. Everything you see in these pictures represent the bike in it's uncleaned, unrestored state. I do have an original decal set that will be included with the bike. The inside of the tubes look clean, although there is surface rust here and there on different areas of the frame. It is definitely all SURFACE rust, nothing that effects the frame structurally. The only other thing to mention is a very tiny crack at the top of the seat lug on the back side. When I got the frame I didn't spot it and the last owner didn't either. It's tiny (maybe 2mm) and not going anywhere. I can photograph it later. Would be a very easy fix should the frame every be repainted, and something easy to forget about should the bike be kept in it's original condition. I think the photos pretty much tell the story, but I will be happy to answer any questions. Here's a quick list of what's on it - Campagnolo raised-lip cranks24t Campagnolo inch pitch ringWipperman block chain. Campagnolo Con Dente pedalsCampagnolo hubs dated '58 & '59 (I bought them as a set and was told they may have originally come this way)Fiamme rimsCamagnolo headset with Cinelli washer (I have a magistroni clamp, but that stack height was too high to use)Cinelli seat post and Unica saddle. Cinell Milano stem and mod. 14 bars. http://www.flickr.com/photos/19321250@N05/sets/72157623586822942/ I'm asking $3,000 shipping included within the U.S. Nathan CozzolinoSan Francisco, California
