the "CX" Mystery is Solved

Reader Gianluca, who owns a VETTA that has the CX markings, gave me a tip that the framebuilder of the "CX" marked framesets was Antonio Taverna of Padova.

I have been in touch with Sig. Taverna and I asked if he was the framebuilder. He responded with, "Yes, these frames were made in 1982-1984 when the Cinelli framebuilding components were available to framebuilders."

Cinelli had previously verified that these were not Cinelli made frames.

Here are examples of CX framesets (click on images to enlarge):

Giotto Cinelli, 1947/1948

The owner of this frame (and also the earlier posted 1946/1947) makes these observations:
-I think this is a 1947-48, perhaps one of the last bikes built by Giotto before Cino takes over the activity,
-the shape of the badge, and gold color, anticipate the next bikes from Cino,
-note that the head badge indicates C.B. & C. (Cinelli Bianchi & C),
-the seat post collar is G. Bianchi which was a distributor and representative for a short time for Cinelli bikes and components,
-the bike belonged to racer Giuseppe Sabatini
