Original binder bolt (At least, it's the one that came with the frame and it loooks original. The center part has been machined away, as was done with Cinelli's binder bolts)

Photos of another very nice 1972 Cinelli Speciale Corsa are online at We note at least one difference between that frame and ours--theirs lacks fender braze-ons on the dropouts.  We guess that since ours was a special order frame, that Frankie (the original owner) probably asked to have them installed.
