I got a call from east Finland couple days ago...there a man asking if I´m interested buying his old Colnago.

He told it´s red with nice lugs full Super Record -group, pantographed parts and on toptube it says Arabesque!

I got it this morning....and I´m stunned how nice it is.
It even has original bottle cage!

Small preview pic...

So far I have got this:

"These were built in limited numbers from 1983 to 84 and were to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Colnago. The best group for a build was the 30th anniversary Colnago group and next in line the 50th anniversary Campy group.
Only about 250 or so were made."
