Thanks to Bob who writes, "Whilst trying to identify my newly aquired early 1950’s frame, I was sent this ad (click on image to enlarge) which was placed in the November 21 1952 edition of British magazine ‘Motor Cycle and Cycle Trader”. The frame in the ad appears to have Simplex drop outs and braze-ons for derailleurs and rear brake cable. It seems to have a semi-sloping fork crown with points on the outside. I hope this will be of interest to your readers."
Reminder: I invite you to contribute by sending in photographs of your Cinelli bike, illustrations, personal stories, and articles about Cinelli bikes and components. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
