Hi Jim,

Here's my latest project. It's a 1972 Cinelli Speciale Corsa. I purchased it from a very nice man from Texas in August. The frame has been repainted and I purchased it with most of the Nuovo Record components. All I needed to do was add the finishing touches. I added the brake cables, brake housing, cable clips, bottle cage and saddle. I swapped out the handle bars and stem for a set up that fit me better. I also swapped out the wheels replacing the tubulars with clinchers, although I have since bought a set of tubulars that I'm cleaning up for this bike.

An interesting point on this bike is that the chain stay bridge and seat stay bridge are set up for fender installation! I'm not sure who painted the frame but they did a wonderful job. The chrome is excellent, except for the seat lug, that area would have been chromed, but it has been painted.

The ride quality is incredible!
