Subject: [CR]Saronni (Colnago) - info sought.

Hi all,

Just seeking some info on these & any impressions some may have. I understand that these are likely to be regular Colnago's with different decals but what Colnago would they be similar in tier to and when were they made. Any pictures or links to examples would help too. Ive seen only one that is on Mark B's scans (what a treasure that is - thanks Mark). Would serial #'s be the same as per Colnago. Are they valued less or more than Colnago's of similar era.

I have an opportunity to purchase a nice example of a Saronni pista frame, but I'm not sure if the chome fork (drilled) is original. I guess that might make it somewhat unusual. If I go for it i'll post pics & details if not .... I'll let the list know where & how much and can help with buying & shipping if needed. Alas, it's not cheap but in a beautiful Azzuri blue with quite fetching white decals (panels with black lettering & clover leafs). Got my tri-colori Benotto tape in waiting & trying not to let the kinda jaded & grumpy seller know of my lusty excitement about this frame.
