I think a half resto AK - it looks tidy enough as a frame. Clean up the chrome, a light cut and polish and done. Jog my memory, but where have I seen this before?

Have just happened across a Dura Ace ax aero group and I'm trying to decided if its blasphemy to fit to this Nago.... Same era and aero theme but I have never seen a CX with it....

There must be more Colnago's stashed away in other forum members sheds - lets see them.

I hope carbon fibre ones are allowed

I ran out of junk to put behind the bike! Old paint tins should be the focal point.

Group sort for the CX Oval.... Checking what it looks like prior to proper build... I think it works...

I have had a white 56cm Colnago Oval CX frame set for sometime now and cant seem to find any info on the bike? Does anyone have any idea how much these could be worth? I ask because I cant decide to sell it or invest the dollars into a build...

Thanks stevendavid75. I admired the frame in DeGrandi's for a couple of years then I was made an offer I couldn't refuse. I just fell in love with the 'Italian' theme paint scheme on the frame which I have never seen on another Colnago. I had a 50th Anniversary gruppo so I but the 2 together with a few special bits and pieces. It really has only been ridden around the block about 5 times due to the groupeset. The saddle is a Campy pneumatic 'Electra' which are going for a small fortune on ebay at the moment - $1500+ which is just ridiculous. I have never inflated the saddle either.

It's my special bike as it has practically all I ever wished for in a bike. I'd still like an OMAS fastener set to finish it off.

That's one special bike and it is coming together very nicely indeed. It will be interesting if you can get a nice line on the rear brake cable. I haven't seen the delta's fitted to a CX before.

Some beauties in here, thanks for sharing.
Just putting it out there that I'm looking to join this club some time. I'm on the lookout for a frame (53-55cm). If anyone's ever looking to move one on I'd be interested to talk.
