McLean Seat Clusters













Generally seat clusters are like finger prints, indicative of the builder. They might have a couple of favorites they generally use. To keep myself from going buggy waiting for McLean M05030 to arrive, I've been looking at Fonvielle's clusters. I would have to say that clusterwise he was schizophrenic. I've collected pictures of a dozen or so and have ten variations. There's nothing heavy or deep about this, just curious.

The top one looks like a Cinelli Supercorsa binder which has been totally redone in a better way. . . . the hole filled, I think redrilled and fitted with singlesided bolt.

I wish mine had that treatment. The real deal is not very strong.

maybe the seat cluster was just an interesting place for Fonvielle to express himself?

Obviously it's a sickness.
