This Cinelli Model B from ca. 1960 is an excellent piece of cycling history.
Since it entered the market, the Modello B - the 'little brother' of the Modello S.C. - has been one of the most elegant and competitive bikes available. Through the decades it has changed in small details, but always remained a thoroughbred racing bike. This model's elegance and performance are legendary.
Viktor Kapitanov's triumph in the olympic road race of 1960 on a Model B is unforgettable. Today, collectors around the globe are trying to get hold of good pieces.
The paint and chrome on our bike is still original with a most vibrant orange.
As for the components, they are some of the finest available. The shifting is Campagnolo, the headset Cinelli, hubs are F.B., saddle Brooks, Cockpit Titan, pedals Lyotard... . Everything is slowed down safely by a reliable set of top class Weinman Vainqueur centre pull brakes and brake levers. These were also a choice of professionals back then.
Despite their quality, this bike is much more than just the sum of its parts. As a whole it is a rare legend that you will enjoy riding for years to come. And a feast for your eyes.
