I am new to this forum. Hi!
I purchased this bike in approx 2000. It came from a friend who was working in Japan. One of his cycling buddies didn't like the 'feel of it' after 500km so put it up for sale. RRP was approx 8k (Colnago Titanium with Dura Ace and Kysrium wheels) and he offered it for $2000 !!
I rode it for about 3 years, took a 5 year break and have been back on it now for approx 2 years.
I only ride it at local Masters criteriums. As you can see the wheels, stem and handlebars are not original (they originals are all safely packed away).
I am trying to identify the specific model name because once it is fully retired from active racing, I intend to restore it (although not alot of work needed as I have kept it in good condition).
What I do know is that it is a Colnago art Decor Titanio - because it says so on the frame
However, beyond that I am a bit stumped. I have searched sites and Colnago but its not that easy to identify from other pictures.
Some fo the distinguishing features are the Teardrop shaped top and front tubes. It also had IT Krystal Titanium stem and bars and came with complete Dura Ace and Kysrium wheels.
I think it's a Oval Master (maybe a lux?).
However, I would appreciate any assistance in identifying it fully.
