Found a colnago bike to build up with all the correct pantographs and clover cutout in the BB. Always wanted a colnago showpiece.
One issue - the C on the driveside downtube is obviously out of line with the rest of the olnago.
I'm confident it's a genuine bike.
Could be sloppy QC when it was first made or an amateur re-decal

Would it bother you (i'm a little OCD so it does a little)? or could you see it as being unique?
How would it affect value if I did eventually sell down the line?

It would bother me but mostly because it's a Colnago - which my own OCD would expect to be perfect. As to what to do about it, maybe do a better amateur re-decal job or else take it to a professional?

I think the idea of it being worth more because of the flaw is just wishful thinking!! :)

It surprises me that you can get a tyre as big as that to fit a Colnago frame. :?

Still worth it for the frame, cranks, seatpost, headset, brakes? Rest of it would need changing

I don’t know. Just to be clear, I haven’t bought this bike yet... am wondering if it’s worth it...
Hoping you cycling gurus will help me decide

Any panto work on the frame? Are the dropouts stamped colnago . Forks look like the panto is genuine but might not belong to the frame?

The cloverleaf on the bottom bracket is not correct for a Colnago. The base isn't flat but pointed (compare with the fork). There are other frames with cloverleaves.

Personally, I think Midlife has nailed it: Colnago fork married to another frame.

Looks like there is on the seat tube stay and the head tube lug
