It's all good! :D
I've done a complete restoration of the frame. Re-chrome and repaint so I was happy to repair the rust and fix any issues rather than have a problem later.
The photos don't do it justice - it looks like a new bike!
I can't speak highly enough of the work done by Peter Bundy, Electroplating Technologies and Peter Fleming at Star Enamellers.
And it's a great bike to ride, my size exactly :D
Have a great ride,
Peter

Can someone tell me how much a Colnago Sprint is worth, for frame and forks in very good condition??

How come Munga's Wheel-of-value never stops on Bankrupt or Lose a Turn?

I was about to buy one for around $550... HOWEVER, I read the entire thread and saw the posts by lunar about his not fitting. I'm 6'4 and nearly fell for the same trap "Oh it's Colnago and 60cm!!" *Sigh* The search continues 8)
