I have an early 80's Celo Europa Super Celo that I'd like to learn more about. It has crimped top and down tubes, Colnago engraved fluted seat stay caps, and club cutouts on the bottom bracket and head tube lug. The chainstays are stamped Colnago and the rear dropouts are also engraved Colnago. There is no sticker to indicate what tube set was used in it construction. I was recently told that the frame is a Colnago Mexico. I know about Marcel Calborne's relationship with Colnago and was wondering if he just sold rebadged frames or had them manufactured to his specifications? If my frame is a rebadged Colnago, is it a Mexico or Super? Attempts to talk to Marcel by phone have been futile. Any information will be appreciated.
