Cinelli SCP

This full chromed beauty from 1962 or 63 came to my hands last week it auction held in Helsinki Olympic Velodrome. It is painted to Bianchi celeste colors but really it is Cinellin Super Corsa Pista. Year of make is unconfirmed and also that tubing is from Reynolds 531 and Columbus tubing both.

Fast first build and test ride done tonight in moderate rain, it was a bliss for blessed new owner.

Doctor's tools

Visited Doctor's workshop again and he showed interesting vintage and new tools to solve common problems in bicycle repair and build. With these you can save rare frames and hard-to-find forks. I give big respect for Doctor's contribution to world of bicycles.
