Great stuff, beautiful build.
I believe that this is in fact not a prototype but a last "run of the mill" batch whereby CIOCC purchased the remaining Cinelli CMX frame tubing and built a handful of frame and fork sets, with the most noticeable omission being the gusset. I know of an silver one and a "CIOCC" orange (no pun intended) one in Italy.

Re: 1980 Cinelli CMX.1

I believe you are right about your statement above. In any case, this wouldn't discredit these f/f's from being "true Cinelli" CMX.1 since they are made using batches from the very same BMX specific Columbus tubbing for the frames and forks which were given by Cinelli directly from the Cinelli factory to CIOCC back in '79-'80 when Cinelli was looking for frame builders to help them get the new BMX venture off the ground. Not only that, but knowing who CIOCC is in the world of professional cycling (Pelizzoli), a true craftsman in the art of frame welding / building since the early 1970's and still active to this day, I would venture to say that this fact brings these frames a certain "pedigree" unlike the (unknown to us) welders of the other "run of the mill" production frames that where mass-offered to the public and welded by who-knows-who. Maybe CIOCC himself welded the production frames as well since we know now for a fact that he was given direct assess to the project by his good friend at the time Mr. Colombo (which I was told the relationship later soured between the two friends and the reason why Cinelli wouldn't want to comment as to the authenticity of these frames)? This's the reason why It is important for the management at the Cinelli factory to set the record straight and share whatever data they posess in their archives.
Now don't get me wrong; I am not trying to start any sort of "my dad is better than your dad" war of words. Your point about these not been production-model frames is not only valid but also accurate. I just think that my main points about these being built from the same BMX-specific Colombus tubing made at the same time around '79-'80 by the Colombus tubing factory specifically made for Cinelli together with the fact that a master craftsman such as the world-reknown Pelizzoli (CIOCC) should more than qualify these frames / forks as to be considered "legitimate".
