Cinelli Design, 1983 "Golden Black"
We have written a few times about these special bikes (see here, here, and here). The last of these is has a badge that "Cinelli Design, September 1983, n 5". This particular bicycle is now in the collection of Speedbicycles who has been kind enough to allow us to use the photos of it. For the complete collection of photos click here.
