mid-late 70's Windsor AM-4 "Profesional" Track. Columbus double-butted SL Max steel. 54cm.

Cinelli/Cinelli. 67-39 Pista bars, Milano stem


Campagnolo 1036 Record Pista hub; Cerchio Fiamme Red Label rim.

Campagnolo 1036 Record Pista hub, Campagnolo 16t cog & lockring; Cerchio Fiamme Red Label rim.

70mm, Italian thread (currently Miche Primato - new purchase, not pictured)

Concor San Marcos Superleggera - black, vintage. Stock 26.8 seat post.

Suntour Cyclone track pedals (vintage), john-doe-special red chain (stock)

Campagnolo Pista 165mm Cranks, Campagnolo 46T chainring.

Save the bottom bracket, this is an all-original vintage find. I'm in the process of a period-correct restoration, currently cleaning the tubular rims of the old glue and waiting on new Servizio Corsas (gumwall tubulars).

Decals and frame are in great condition. During this period of time, Windsor was owned by Acer-Mex Corporation, and frames were being designed by an ex-Cinelli framemaker and manufactured in Mexico. During this time they became known as "the poor man's Cinelli." The model name ("Profesional") is spelled with one 'S' as it's written in both Spanish and Italian.

Some more info-
Date: not sure. Serial # is '10231'. If anyone has any information, please PM me.
Material: Columbus, has a beautiful old "Tubi Rinfozati Garantiti" decal on seat tube.
Dropouts: Shimano front and rear.

Currently on the market (and saving up) for a vintage Super Record headset & bottom bracket.

sweet find. i have the same

sweet find. i have the same one but its silver. yours have the 3 dots in the lugs? o and mine has campy lugs not shimano


This frame does have the dots on the lugs - a very interesting feature which I've seen on some of the Cinelli frames of the era. It's really so Italian its funny. The name is the only thing non-Italian about it.

That's cool that yours has Campy dropouts. I'm thinking mine is probably a mid to late 70's model since the dropouts are both stamped Shimano.

I finally cleaned up the old rims and got my tubulars in the mail, planning on setting it and taking new pics this weekend.

yea that's pretty awesome.

yea that's pretty awesome.


Thanks - I'm pretty happy with it myself. The photos turned out a bit larger than expected, but oh well.
