As I recall, about a year ago, this seller tried to sell some no-name british frame as a Colnago...and failed.. I hope.

He's at it again, this time with a frame that, as far as I can tell, is clearly not a Colnago (although the fork might be..hard to tell, and with no pics of the lug tangs I can't see the cutouts)..

ok, maybe it's a Colnago, but certainly not from 1974, and not with the usual Prugnat lugs that Colnago used throughout the 70s..

the aftermarket drilled out rear-drop-outs are a nice--if slightly alarming--touch.

I hate it when people do this. Gives ebay a bad name...<g>
