1950's Cinelli Speciale Corsa pista

After searching for years, recently i have found one! . . 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). . . You might wonder why the purple paintjob ?!?, This frameset was used by a Dutch trackcyclist Harrie Mater and his sponsor was "Unico Schilders" which translates in "Unico Painters" in English. And because of sponsorship reasons the frame got this amazing purple paintjob, which i think looks awesome :) . . This frameset dates back to the late 1950's and this can be seen by the Cinelli wolf ear lugs which was used untill 1968ish. . . I found this frameset with a whole mix of parts, and got the matching jersey which came with the bike. . . 59cm center center 61cm center top 59cm top tube
