Cinelli To Re-Issue Classic Laser Track Frame

We seem to be on a vintage kick today here at BikeRumor, as we have now confirmed that the storied Cinelli Laser track bike, made popular during its run as one of the coolest bikes of the ’80′s, is returning to production. According to a press release from Cinelli;

‘Today thanks to the rebirth of steel and people like yourselves, a dream is about to be realised: the Cinelli Laser will return. Not just as a museum display, but as a track machine; rigid and lively, more so even than its predecessor 20 years ago. All the original protagonists are ready and motivated; Andrea Pesenti who built 300 throughout the 1980’s, myself Antonio Colombo who thought them up, Paolo Erzegovesi who engineered them, and Emilvano Montorio who pulled out the tubes. New in the band will be Alessandra Cusatelli, my partner, and Cinelli design co-ordinator of the last 10 years. As always, it will only be available in limited editions. The kids are alright!”

No word on pricing or availability quite yet, but it will probably be similar to the limited run of the originals, in which they only produced 300 frames by hand. Stay tuned to BikeRumor for updates from Cinelli.

Thanks to Bill for the tip!

No. F#$king. Way. That’s been my dream bike since it first came out…and was also the very first fixed-gear bike I ever got to ride (one of our club members had one, and it was gorgeous).

I may have to sell a child to afford one of these reissues!!!

“a track machine; rigid and lively” i think they will find that not a single one of these 300 will be used on a track or in a race of any kind. why not just say its for hipsters and a way to make a bit of money because cinelli’s ‘modern’ range of framesets is just awful?

oh god forbid that someone have fun riding one of these around instead of strictly racing. lighten up man, it’s a beautiful frame, no need to be such a hater.
