Can anyone tell me what kind of seatpost this is on this Colnago? Appears to be an Aero Campagnolo that was cutaway or similar to a Gipiemme that I have also. >>

Someone probably already answered this, but... This is a modified special, SR seatpost that Campy apparently supplied to aftermarket component pantographing/customizing businesses. The "hole" in the seat post was not machined as far up into the posts length, and then it was possible to machine in that aero section. Usually the flat sides of the aero section had the frame maker's name engraved/pantographed therein...
