Hi guys!

I got this recently and would need your expertise to identify this frame.

It could be a Colnago, but I am not sure because there is not a single Colnago engraving. The Colnago decal on the steer tube is original, the Colnago lettering on the top-tube, downtube and seattube has been done perfectly by airbrush. Just as it can also been seen on the Master Olympic's and other Colnago frames from that period.

The paintjob is generally very well done, doesn't look like a repaint to me, but why are there no Colnago engravings anywhere? The material is alluminium, weight is 2750g, front dropouts are Italmanubri and the downtube is shaped in a way it changes from vertically ovalized to horizontally ovalized.

Please see more pics in my flickr:

I would appreciate any information! Thanks in advance!

Regards from Vienna,

Ron

I would suggest a PM to forum member Saarf, he seems to know Colnago bikes very well.

There is one odd feature on your frame; it has a front mech pulley. These are usually found on frames from the early 1990's before top pull front mechs were easy to get hold of.
