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;
â€˜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 1980â€™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!â€
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!
