In support of Dale's statement (below), I have a very nice circa 1973 Colnago Super that has a decal on the seat tube just below the Columbus SL decal that states "Record Ora Mexico 1972" in World Champion stripes. (Thanks again Carlo Carr! The bike is now finally built up with 1973 NR with SR chainrings and brake levers and my son really likes it).
