Grail bike. Looks like the complete bike is on offer, although it has already been disassembled.
In a twist, this one is already located in the United States, not in Europe (or Japan, for that matter).
This is an original Cinelli Laser Crono Strada … One of the most sought after bikes in the world. It is the 24th frame made by the Cinelli Factory as evidenced by “S24” stamped on the bottom bracket.
Please see pictures for details and condition of frame and all components. More pictures available here: http://s284.photobucket.com/user/Welshead/library/?sort=2&page=1
Specifications below to the best of my knowledge. All parts are original to bike except where noted.
I acquired this bike in 1990 as the second owner … I raced it twice and it has been in the attic ever since. I had considered having the frame professionally restored (painted w/ new original decals) and have quotes from a couple of the top bicycle restoration shops in the country, but then decided it may be more desirable in current condition (given it’s rarity) or sold for new owner to have restored under their control.
Bike will be professionally packaged with each component individually wrapped, insured and shipped.
Feel free to ask any questions … I will respond promptly.
