WTS - BNE - 1979 Colnago Super (NOS)

Postby Ranchu » Wed Feb 22, 2012 7:26 pm

Hi all,

Up for grabs is a New Old Stock (NOS) 1979 vintage Colnago Super. This frameset is pristine and the photos do not do justice to the depth and lustre of the paint finish!

I purchased this from an Ebay seller in Germany back in mid-2010 with grand plans to built it up with modern components. Shortly after I bought a custom steel bike and this Colnago sat in the box ever since. Interests have changed so I'd rather see this go to a good home rather than sit in a box :-)

Dimensions: 58cm c-c; 60cm c-t
Price: $750, firm

Yeah it is temping to hold onto it in case I get the urge to build it up down the track. But I really need to cull the herd a bit to make some room for other interests and hobbies. Still ride my custom steelie all the time and luv it!

I presume this is the Seat Tube, but what is the Top Tube C=C ?

If I hadn't just bought a Cannondale six13 NOS I would have been all over this. :evil: Bloody awesome frame mate. No need to offer luck with this sale.
I ride several bicycles, but not at once.

This could be a long build. Not even sure where to begin. Seems like Nuovo Record would be the group.

I learnt a lot in the process with the last one...this one is still rattling around in my head with possibilities. :D
