Mystery bike (Sacramento)

Opportunity? Or maybe not…


Cinelli Super Corsa Full Campagnolo needs restoration – $950 (Grass Valley, CA)

Been stored away in my attic for far too long now, this vintage (late 70’s – early 80’s) Columbus steel bike needs loving restoration, including a full frame strip and new paint. There is rust (not serious – come inspect) and all the rubber parts are shot. (This happens when you leave something in the attic for 20 years.) There is not a decal anywhere, but my eyes always said it’s a Cinelli Super Corsa, or else it’s a very, very good replica. The bottom bracket is marked Cinelli SC. The frame lugs, the full Campy Record, all the brazed on fittings (and the period correct Super Champions!) look totally 1970’s Cinelli to me. (I once owned a 62 cm Super Corsa, purchased new from Cupertino Bike Shop in the 1970’s.) 58 cm center of bottom bracket to top of top tube or 57 cm center of bottom bracket to center of top tube. 57 cm top tube center to center.
