Thanks again to Christoph in Germany for sending the above images (click to enlarge). I note that now the first Cinelli (on page 1) is now identified as an "A" model, and that on page 2 is reference to model "C"; neither of which were identified as such in the 1953 catalog.
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
