General Information
The flat bar Cinelli Priest, designed 1980 on demand of Pope John Paul II for his white Colnago.  Very rare item. 

The very rare earlier version was engraved with the full name "Cinelli" on both sides. The small shim in this version was prone for a loose clamp area between the shim and handlebar.
