new years project,
pictured on the return journey home ( a total of 8 trains that day)
mid 1970'3 Colnago Mexico, 1st gen Campagnolo Super Record, patented '77,
and drilled levers
I have the rest of the components , so will post a pic,
I'm going to renovate totally, as the frame set has been resprayed previously, and now has surface rust here and there, no corrosion though

the groupset, calipers and crank arm are unusual

A lot of potential, it will be great bike when you finish. That drilled and milled parts look nice. What colour will it be?

Mix of record / super record stuff milled and drilled............smack bang in the middle of my era :D

Will a magnet stick to the pedal spindles?

The frame looks a little newer than 77, not sure why though?

Nice :D

thanks
the seat stay caps are hollow, so hence my assumption of era, I have two early 80's examples and the seat caps are ''capped'' and have colnago cut out
the rd is patented 77 super record, , 77 gruppo is like nuovo record apart from rd,fd,h/s, seat post and levers no?

Thanks
I'm going to fully chrome it, I had one before like that,( http://saarf.net/category/colnago-mexico-fully-chromed/ ) and as some people who repair and refurb for the Colnago Benelux distributors are working on something else for me, and they have said they'll do this
