1950's Cinelli Speciale Corsa pista #2.

Finding frames likes these is one thing, but when i get an email with the question 'if i would be interested in a Cinelli pista'. The answer was very quickly made :) Offcourse i am interested. Cino Cinelli was born in Montespertoli (near Florence), Italy, 9 February 1916, he passed away on the 20th of April 2001. Cinelli family: Poor farming family from the province of Florence. 10 children total (born in less than 20 years) 7 boys and 3 girls. The second Arrigo (b. 1913), third Giotto (b. 1915) and fourth Cino (b. 1916) sons were active in cycling. Arrigo raced as an independent pro (1936-38); Giotto raced as a team pro for Maino (1936) and Bianchi (1937) and independent pro until 1940. Cino raced as independent pro (1937), and team pro for Fréjus (1938-39), Bianchi (1940-43), and Benotto (1944). . . This frameset dates back to the 1950's. 1951-52: The iconic Modello S.C. "Speciale Corsa" featuring full-sloping fork crown and fast-back seat stay / seat post bolt system starts production. Chrome Malaguti "wolf's ears" head lugs, chrome fork crown and chrome "socks" on the stays and fork legs, four chrome rings on the seat tube and lozenge-shaped "CINELLI" decal on the down tube. Georg Fischer sand-cast fork crown, seat lug and bottom bracket shell along with Reynolds 531 main tubes and Columbus fork blades and seat stays. Transition years was in around 1959-1960 when the Malaguti "wolf's ears" head tube lugs disappear on Mod. S.C. and Mod. B. and Cinelli head tube lugs are used. 58cm center center 60cm center top 58cm top tupe
