Perhaps we can add the Cinelli that Toby1974 had wanted to add last month well after the polling had begun?

Sorry mate, front light is much to modern :D :wink:

I had one of them when I was a lad. My first 'proper' bike. I wanted a 'racer' but my Mum said that drop handlebars would make me round shouldered. It soon got converted though :twisted:

Riding all them drop handlebars over the years has made me walk like Quasimodo - not!

BTW, I seem to remember that it had white wall tyres and straight 'bars. Can you actually get white wall 26 x 1 3/8 tyres these days?

This is my Colnago Super Piu decor, all original with new matching bottle cages. I the top picture I added a 1/A stem as the Colnago ITM was a bit too long for me....
