1965 Cinelli sc pista #4.

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 mid 1960's. Having the Cinelli lugs without the 3point lugs, Notice that these lugs are rounded off instead of the long point Cinelli lugs. And the Georg Fischer bb shell. Courtesy of the found info can be found on: http://www.velo-retro.com/cinellitline . . . Something that does raised a question in the stamped letter R on the bb shell. I have a feeling this in a initial from the Cinelli framebuilder. But who can tell me if my feeling is right. Needless to say another great piece of Italian craftmanship. 52cm center center 53,5cm center top 53cm top tube
