I'm new to the forum and this is my first post.
Been lurking for a while but it's about time I'd contribute to the forum.
Recently I bought this beautiful 1985 Colnago from a former Belgian amateur racer (at a good price too). He was the first owner and only raced it from '85 to 86 just before he quit. After that it got used for the occasional recreational ride. When I bought it it had been sitting in the attic for quite some years.
I asked him if he knew the model name but he had no clue.
Maybe somebody on here can help me ID it? See below for pics.
Is it a Super/Superissimo/Mexico? The chromed headtube lugs seem to be quite rare...
As you can see it has a crimped top and downtube (only on the left and right side of the tubes). The BB shell features a Colnago clover.
It came equipped with Super Record front and rear mech, crankset, shifters, seatpost, Gran Compe Royal callipers and levers (the Exage aero levers where put on in a later stage) and a Hattaswan headset.
I'm in the proces of restoring it and already put in a better looking wheelset (the originals where grey anodized tubular Mavics, pretty worn) and a pair of Super Record callipers. Still looking for a nice pair of SR levers... also thinking about using a pair of aero Campa levers that I already have.
A nice white Rolls will be put on and ofcourse some white handlebar tape. Oh yeah, and the original SR pedals have been cleaned and will be installed.
