Impressive Uncle Just. It was the only seat cluster nut and bolt I had that fitted the frame. The bolt is too long but it was in as new condition so I used it. Saronni used a nut and bolt on his seat cluster as well on his bike so - I had to use one too.
The chrome work is (or was) flawless but taken beyond what you would find on a Colnago Mexico or Super of that era. Just on that, if you were ordering a Frame from the Colnago factory, you could order it with chrome in a few places, i.e. the stays, forks, lugs, etc. or it could be ordered just painted.
Again - very well spotted.
