1990 Cinelli The Absolute Machine 

Not sure on the history of this model.  This bike came directly from a wholesale distributor in the US who may have been looking to import them?  It is a beautiful black frame with a neat internal cabled stem and Cinelli-labeled carbon fiber handlebars.  This bike has a 1989 serial number but the new for 1990 STI shifters so I am guessing it to be a 1990 model year bike.
