Hi guys, I really need your expertice on this one. I have seen a possible Colnago for sale and I try to determine what it is. I have no picture, but this is what I have seen.
Red frame with simple white surface with Colnago name, both on downtube and seattube.
chrome fork (looks with aero crown)
aero brake levers
braze on shift levers (post 72?)
shift cables above BB (pre 82?)
clamp-on front derailler
chrome seatstays, both sides, possibly including drop-outs
and now the most bugging thing: 3 braze-ons on the TT (top) for the rear brake cable.
I have no ideas what is original and what not, but I think they lost the clips for the brake cable after 77 orso, but I have never seen a Colnago with 3 braze-ons, always 2.
What do you think? Is it a Colnago?
I just found a Colnago Mexico from the late 80's that has 3 braze-ons! It doesn't have the chrome seatstays, the chrome front lugs or the shifter cable going above the BB, but still... 3 braze-ons!
