Re: 1980 Cinelli MX.1

Awesome build.

I seen one of these for sale a few months ago and I wish I could have bought it. I didn't because I knew to do it right it would have been an expensive build.

cyclochris did it right !
A frame of this kind deserves as many Campy parts as possible, and it has.

Very well done !
cool


LOOKING FOR........ or consider in a Trade ;
-Mint or NOS Blue Cal Lite Johar frame pad.
-National Pro / Pro Neck handle bars straight cross bar
-Orig. Blue ZERONINE Pro XL FF

Re: 1980 Cinelli MX.1

Hopefully cyclochris doesn't mind me posting, but sub 20 is more of an accurate statement.  Still impressive.  We weighed it when he brought it over a while back.

Re: 1980 Cinelli MX.1

Would you trade? ( desperately tryin....)

Its unfair though! Why youvguys dont stick to American brands, huh!tongue
I spent hours as a kid in front of this bike inside that shop...astronomically expensive for my father.

F/f only would be fine...


Wanted:
RNC brake lever, bolts and bar ends
Cinelli CMX frame

Re: 1980 Cinelli MX.1

I have to come back and look at this every once in a while. It's one of the few that I regret selling. Do you still have it and is it still built the same ? smile

Re: 1980 Cinelli MX.1

Yup still have it exactly the same. I need a cinelli stem at some point. It’s the only thing that is missing from my dream parts list for this bike.
