Expecting this later in the week....

I think its a 1993/1994 Super Piu - Precisa fork, internal under/over brake routing, chrome head lugs, chromed driveside chainstay, club pantographed seatstays and enough decals to be 90s but not enough EPO-fuelled fluoro colours to be late 90's. Race number hanger is intriguing. Seller states frame weight at 2220g, which for a 56 square says SL to me - thoughts?

A bit of work to do on the fork and lug chrome, but relatively tidy and a good price in a pretty depressed market. Stay tuned.

Interesting you say that, because I have been thinking about how to add some colour to it, eg. bar tape and cable outers or something like that.
Actually I was looking for a red one (like yours!) but this one just 'popped up'.

Nice! Is the tubing tange? From what I understand, the 94's were tange, whereas the 93's were colombus SL. I bought a 94 in tange a couple of weeks ago. It rides very nicely. Quite snappy.

Colnago Appreciation Society

Postby Dan » Sat Mar 09, 2013 10:16 pm

Yeah, thanks guys. AJ, frame is very tidy. Fork (precisa) less so but still good. Paint in great condition, a chip here and there but that's how it goes.

Mr TDC - re: steel, that's one of the interesting things - its unstickered. Paint looks original though (as if I can tell though o_O ). Has the super/super piu identifiers like chromed head lugs and drive side chain stay, under/over internal brake cable routing, etc. It also has a race number hanger just aft of the brake cable entry.

Weight is 2230g, which in a 56 square frame says SL to me. Again, have nothing to confirm this, though.

More pics in coming days. Wazza is convinced I'm building it as we speak.

Alan, its getting a 10 speed centaur semi carbon group, with rear wheel made up by velo13 - open sup to formula hub - and I built up an open 4 to 5700 hub the other week for the front.

Itm superitalias, san marco concor. Nothing über flash, but it'll be tough.

I could almost garantee that bike once belonged to me. Take note !!!!! 650c wheels which is why I sold it. Looked kind of cool & kind of weird with a twist of lime :?

looks great...some gumwall tyres like veloflex master 23 or vittoria corsa SC would really set it off.

thanks all :) Yes, white tape en route, and some veloflexes are on the long term list - had some maxxis gumwalls I shifted with another bike which I now wish I'd kept.

So my contribution certainly isn't as nice as others.

I had a master that was immaculate that I sold to a mate which is soon to be built up but it was just too small for me.
Move forward 3 years and I found this bike at a supermarket in Geelong . Some fellow was just using it as a town bike. Anyway I gave him my number if he ever wanted to sell it. It was prett rough and still is .

3 months later I got a call asking if I was still interested . And I was. Bike arrived a month or so later, with a turbo saddle, look delta and a rear wheel build and some vintage colnago tape added its now on the road.

So it is a master piu
Looks like chorus 8 speed syncro chorus .

Nice Dan.

By the way. What size seatpost did it take? It might help identify the tubing. As suggested before, I am guessing by the lack of Columbus decals it is Tange tubing.

27.2 Scott. Could be anything. In any case, it seems pretty snappy, but I only gave it about 8 km today. Will give it a run into work tomorrow & report back. On the scout for a mini cowbell for the unexplained race number hanger.
