This isn early 60s Cinelli frame which has been extensively modernised - the rear dropouts are the earlier Campag long slot type with the hole for the Sport spring, the BB has oil /grease ports, the chainstay bridge has a mudguard mount and the seatclamp bolt is the hex nut type. But the seatstay bridge has been replaced with a more modern one - 60s Cinelli often require a deep drop rear brake... And I think the fork is a more modern one too... The paint is also much neweer and certainly not original! Hilary Stone, Bristol, British Isles
