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). . . Dating a Cinelli frameset is a bit hard, since they never used a data base with framenumbers. In the early 1950's untill the 1960s the Cinelli frames had the Maluguti lugs. The 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. . In 1960 the model SC is referred to as "Super Corsa" in 1960 Ron Kitching catalog. In the mid 1960's frames are no longer supplied with chrome Cinelli "Supercorsa" headset and chrome Cinelli bottom bracket (track bike supplied with clip-style headset). Then later in 1968-69 three holes in the tops of lugs start to appear on some frames. . . Looking at the info i have found on the velo- retro website, i think i can say that. This frames dates back to the early 1960's. Having the Cinelli lugs without the 3point lugs,and the reinforced dropouts. Georg Fischer bb shell. . I found this Cinelli trackbike in Germany where it was used in the velodrome as a trainings frame. Hence the respray, which at first i was like ooh no what have they done..... And on the other side i think the purple with silver speckless looks pretty cool. The Cinelli steel headset and Magistroni bottom bracket are what i believe original parts. And maybe the steel sprint track handlebar also. All the other parts have been added in a later stage by the previous owner.
