I am wondering if you can identify this colnago ? I believe it is a super pui, in original paint? Any other info is appreciated.

No decals at all on the top tube? Any chance this is a repainted frame? What about tubing sticker?

Yeah, could be anything, literally. A close up of rear dropouts, seat clusterand underside of BB shell would help. Also, what tubing and are any tubes crimped?

Ok the frame is legit with the BB and all. There appears to be a tubing sticker under the second bideon cage, if you're seriously interested, ask for a closeup of that. 1500 CAD is quite a tall order for what might well be a lower range 80s frame (wild guess because of old-style BB). Sachs "New Success" looks to be in fair order from the pics, though.

Yes, it's a tubing made by Columbus and It's probably SL which is the grade of tubing the frame is constructed from.

A lot of 70's and early 80's high grade racing bikes were made from these tubes so it is no bad thing, In fact all my bikes bar 1 are Columbus SL.

The one you are looking at might be a Super Pui and you can check it against this one;

In particular you want to look at where the skinny tubes at the back (seat stays) meet the bit where the saddle post goes in the frame and all the tubes meet (the seat post cluster) and compare the joint and the ends of the seat stays with those in the link above. If they are the same then you are a lot closer to identifying your Colnago.

Wether it's a good Colnago model I can't say.

What I can say is that as you are in the US you can get a lot of bang for your buck if you look hard enough.

Damn!, thats a fine bike. Not sure about the seat though :roll:

The Merckx might look like an old banger, but it's really a very good bike designed by Ugo De Rosa. Top quality although the price is a little steep and it needs a Super Record derailleur and some record SL pedals.

Mmmmmmmmmmm..... Nice Betty
