Cinelli "Schuster" Super Corsa





This frame was recently sold as a "Vintage CINELLI Schuster Columbus SLX Frame & Fork Super Corsa".

There is not such a Cinelli bicycle.

It is known that Mr. Schuster, owner of the Schuster bicycle shop in Germany, had frames made by the Italian subcontractor Vetta that had "Schuster" pantographs on the fork crown and seat-stays. The lugs and BBs on these bikes were always Cinelli (Cinelli was at the time also in the business of selling framebuilding parts, lugs, bb, brake bridges, fork crowns, etc).

Also, you can clearly see that there isn't a Cinelli serial number.
