Ive been watching this Colnago Super frame on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/330873257181?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
The thing is, Id like to find a good Colnago frame or complete bike, but sadly I dont have any real knowledge of these frames/bikes yet, but there are a few points about this particular frame that I am not sure about even with my limited knowledge:
Firstly - the top tube has a provision for the rear brake cable to run inside the tube, but I can't find any other photos of a Colnago frame that has this feature...
Perhaps its a very late model ? In which case what age is it ? and would this tie in with the other dated features of the frame?
Secondly, there is no boss to carry the rear brake caliper as I've seen on other Colnago frames - but perhaps that just because it was once a 'track-bike' and the short brace tube was then later simply drilled to accept a caliper ?
Finally - (but probably not) The rear Campag drop outs look unusual - as if they are missing some detail. The radius on the edges of the triangular cutouts dont appear uniform and in some way are lacking some uniformity and finesse ? There are signs of heavy sanding around them, so maybe someone was just a little heavy handed in the past in restoring rust perhaps ?
So - Im hoping that there are a few Guru's out there that may be able to put my mind at rest. Then I can bid - unless i'm told that even the starting price is ait heavy ! what's it worth
Sorry for the scepticism (especially if its someone on here that is seling it) but my main work in life is restoring and preparing Historic Racing cars and within this field there are a lot of fakes to be aware of ! - Im not sure if it's reached the retro bike world yet.
Thanks in advance
