Hi, I could use some help here. I have this Colnago road bike and I need to find out what the model is and it would be nice to know what year model this could be?

Here´s some specs:
- the frame is size 63cm
- it has full Dura Ace groupset, except the headset is newer 105
- It says Columbus Acciaio in the frame

I found out that some Super frames had the Acciaio-tubing, but I´m not sure.

I'll stick my neck out and say it's a mid-1980s Super Sprint but possibly later. They didn't change that much for a while. The gear cabling looks interesting.

From what I can see, I'd say early-mid 80s Super, with Columbus SL tubing. Is the fork crown flat or sloping? They were generally flat until about 82; sloping after.
Nick

edit: I see it is sloping crown now. Mid-80s Super.

The bridgeless bottom bracket is the real giveaway (forks can always be changed), but pinning down the precise year is next to impossible. Could be anytime between mid 80s and mid 90s me thinks. Basic Columbus tubing for a bottom-rung mass-produced Colnago frame, despite the blingy chrome.

Accacio means steel; Gara tubing on label. 2.3kg tubeset


Looks like a sprint:

(this has slightly lighter Cromor tubeset)

Allright, this was really helpful, thanks for all replies!

I´m trying to find a better home for this, because the frame is too big for me.

I think the label says garantiti. With the "ACCIAIO SPECIALE" likely to be SL in that case.

There a whole mess of cabling woes going on there!

Mark.

I forgot to mention that the top tube and down tube are not normal round tubes, but pressed in the form of a leaf.

EDIT: I have seen some Mexico-frames with same kind of tubes. Does the Super have those too?
