I owned this bike (temporarily). It's almost perfect. I sold it at Trexlertown this Fall after deciding I wanted to a) keep the few vintage bikes I have to the early 70s period, b) they be the right size so I could ride them. Then I drifted again when an 80's dave moulton came along (but the right size). Anyone else have this "drift" problem in collecting? This Colnago was originally purchased from the Stuyvesant Bike shop in NYC.
