Well Dawid, really you are a bike dealer so you are obliged to know before posting the ad!! :)

Here is my Colnago Sport I used to own; notice 3 cable guides , ( it also had heart cutouts) , also note factory engraved parts and nice original factory paint and perfect Gipiemme groupset, plus the manner in which the seat stays are resolved into the seat lug... very different from the bike you posted.
Here is a link to another Sport with the same details as mine...
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v101/ ... C_3240.jpg

the sport was a lower end model so wouldn't have had chromed rear triangle I suspect.

Apart from the decals and the colour I can't see anything that would suggest it was genuine.

Bikenut,

Are you sure your Colnago was a Colnago? I am not a Colnago expert myself, but I've been told by an avid collector that the number of guides is an easy way to determine genuine vs fake, built under license or whatever.

Hi

p.s. This is obviosly that it was no Colnago, buer was informed.

Regards dawid


Dawid,

Do you mean that the buyer was informed because you think he could have seen as it is obvious according to you ...or did you actively inform him in advance?

There is a difference between that.

I'm not an expert either but I've seen Colnago Sports with 3 cable guides on top and 2 cable guides on top. Is one of them fake?

Specifications change over time with all manufacturing...cable guides on top of bb , cables under etc etc . Yes mine was genuine, I researched thoroughly prior to purchase and found numerous examples from various collectors... See fox galleria link in this thread. Spend some time doing research of the subject is buyers responsibility, being honest is sellers

ditbicykles - please take care to make your ads open and honest. If you are not sure of the identity of a bike then please state that this is the case. No one wants to be ripped off and hopefully no one wants to rip anyone off.

I'll be keeping an eye on your ads. Please respect the forum and its members.

Thread locked.
