No,

but after a good clean and service, it will probably ride just as well as a Colnago Master... just close your eyes or invest in a respray/restore

I'd go with a good T.Cut and polish. Avoid a respray, its only original once :)

Looks like an early 80's frame, the rear brake cable goes on guides on the top tube (ouch) and the cables for the mechs go under the bottom bracket....no braze on front mech though.

Could be anything really......any more pics or outstanding features ?

Cheers



Shaun
