Wow

ATB That is the nicest shade of red and a beautifully stunning bike.

Corsa Red

Corsa Red, very similar to Ferrari Red.

Probably a Centurion

Looks like a repainted Centurion Equipe with Cinelli decals. Here's one for comparison: https://velospace.org/node/25707

Not a Centurion. Did a bunch

Not a Centurion. Did a bunch of research and I knew this would come up. Compared this frame with an Equipe firsthand, and there are small but noticable differences. Fork crowns are different (Cinelli has integrated crown like all Cinellis from the 80s), all lugs have a slightly different shape (Cinelli has no chrome lugs), clamp on derailleur versus braze on, and the weight of the frames. Cinelli frame is much lighter. Also angle of logo on seat stay. On all Equipes that I have seen logo is perpendicular to seat stay angle, Cinelli has logo same angle as seat stay.

lug tips

Also, the head tube lug tips are much longer than the Centurion-commissioned beast. That's a lovely frame and classy build, only wish the repaint work wasn't so thick around the seat cluster for better definition. But I'm being picky!

The lugs are filed way down,

The lugs are filed way down, but I do agree on the paint. Had Bikeworks in NYC do the repaint. I know they sent it out but not to whom. It's a good job and wasn't expensive but have begun learning bike painting (after this project started). I now know so much more about paint that I may redo it myself at some point. I also have a better source for decals now, these are from the Australian guy on eBay. Just repainted a Ciocc frame with SSS ink decals. Their decals are printed on a thinner mylar.

Ooh, who's your decal

Ooh, who's your decal source? I just finished a De Rosa repaint...the Aussie on ebay was very disappointing (grumpy guy, lousy artwork) so I used Velocals. Much better, but similar 3mil thickness. I couldn't get enough clearcoat build to fully smooth the decal edges, so if you have a thinner source I'm all ears.
