Cinelli Golden Black

The Golden Black was evidently a show bike, made to be collected and hung on a wall, not ridden. The frame is not noticably different to the standard Cinellis of the same period, but the attention to detail and the groupset are extraordinary. This Golden Black was purchased by a collector in Germany and never ridden; price unknown. The Super Record groupset dates from 1981, but the frame itself was built in 1987. The frame bears no serial number; it has only a gold plate stating it was built in February 1987 (I'll give you one guess how many were made in Feb.'87!). The highly modified Super Record components must have been delivered in pieces, specially prepared, and stored in anticipation of a limited production run. The total number of units produced is not known.
