Finally got my dream steel frame, it's a 1996 cinelli supercorsa in Giallo Curry. I currently ride a LOOK 595 with 11 speeds Chorus and Corima aero+, so the supercorsa will be a retro project with 1996 Record Titanium (Period correct :D ).
Sorry for my poor English. I've got some parts but the saddle and rim are not decided yet. Give me some suggestion please.

the frame and fork (size 52, including record headset and seatpost bolt) weight 2498g, really nice for a 90s steel frame.
Here are the build list:
Groupset: Campagnolo Record Titanium 8 speeds
Seatpost and Stem: Campagnolo Record and Cinelli 1A 100mm
Handlebar: Cinelli Giro 40cm
Headset: Campagnolo C-Record
Saddle: Brooks Swift or Selle Italia SLR or FLITE 1990?
HUBS: Campagnolo Mirage 8 speed
Rims: H+SON TB14 or Mavic Reflex?

I know the Flite 1990 will be the best saddle for this bike, but I've already got a SLR and a Swift; Mavic Reflex(grey color) now is laced on my new black Record hub, they perform quiet well and weight 410g each, wondering they will look good on this project. Also the tyre, tan sidewalls or black?

Amazing frame and color!
I would prefer Mavic or Ambrosio rims not H+SON. I would like a San Marco Regal or a Flight saddle. The Brooks is totally out of place and SLR is too modern.

I agree but I would go for a Cinelli Volare saddle...
