Introducing Miss Milano 1972 – my ’72 Cinelli Speciale Corsa vintage lightweight - completed after 18 months of what can only be described as obsessive effort.

For the bike spotters there will be full build details soon but for now enjoy the images – photography by Andy White of Fyxomatosis

The bike good enough on its own, there is no need to add high heels and garters for a pseudo-classy impression. :noidea:

Ice cream is great.
Roast beef is awesome.

Roast beef with ice cream? ... It just doesn't match.

You sure you got the sizing right? It's unusal for a vintage bike with downtube shifters to show that much post. I hope you can actually ride it comfortably. Can't imagine if it had been a 56 like you originally wanted. :shock:
