    Best bike ever! Took me a while to get it functioning, but this bike almost gets more use than any other. My oldest son Napoleon (not the one in the picture) is on it ALL THE TIME. I get my morning workout on the Cyclette.

    That is about as vintage looking as it comes. Would have guessed 1960's. Garage sale find?

    It looked 1950's to me, but I think Carnielli made it in that style specifically for Harrod's. I would never have guessed 1979 but it says so right on the sticker (celebrating Carnielli's 70th anniversary). I never new till now that Carnielli ever made anything except Bottechias. I actually bought this one off of an older lady who was selling all the stuff she had brought here to Canada from London when she moved here from London in the 80's. She was moving into a retirement home. I always wanted a bike I could ride in teh living room, nut can't stand the way the new ones look. I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it!
