The handful of Windsor Pros I've examined were all like the one I've owned for 27 years - very well made with an excellent finish which makes me think an untrained eye could easily be fooled into some bogus Cinelli story. My Windsor is a '73. Mexico does have craftsmen & can produce fine products. I can imagine that the Windsor people had plenty of quality control issues that seemed endemic in the 70's just like the ones Colnago went through.
