This is a rare Centurion Cinelli Equipe from the only year (i believe) it was in production: 1984. I don't know that any of the components are stock although all the high end Centurion bikes of that year came with Selle Italia Turbo saddles. It has some nice late 70's-ish Nuovo Record hubs laced to some modern Mavic rims. It was professionally repainted at some point and stamped with "Cinelli." With Columbus SL tubing and Cinelli lugs it practically is. From what I've read this bike was comparable to it's Super Corsa contemporary. It rides like a dream.

People who friended this bike monkeywrench, lowell, shoegazer, room203, jan nikolajsen

i got one too...

...and it has been repainted like yours in the same color. i wonder if the same person did both, since i bought mine in seattle.
your pictures are a little contaminated with other URL's on my screen, so it looks like there's only one of the Equipe. I would love to see more.


Your Equipe

The ride is the giveaway. This is one smooth riding frame. The OEM Equipe had that Ofmega headset. Mine is OEM and I know of 3 others, all say "Made in Italy" on them. Maybe not on-site at Cinelli's plant, but somewhere around there. Great bike.

One of a kind....

Solid bike!

Thanks for your feedback,


elegance, that's what I say
