Extra detailsCinelli track bikes in original condition are rare. What is rare and interesting about this particular machine is that it has never been ridden. It was purchased new by one of Canada's most famous racing cyclists, multi-Olympian Lorne 'Ace' Atkinson, not to ride, as he had retired from racing, but to display in his business Ace Cycles in Vancouver. Some years later it was bought by a racing friend of Lorne's who had the same intention and it remained with him for some twenty years on display in his house. It passed to the BOFCI collection in 2005. Apart from new bar tape - same type and colour - and a few storage marks, it is as new. Bike such as this provide a perfect reference point for restorers.
Thanks for reading
