To the Colnago Coven:

From my photo collection I infer that in '72 Colnago started using brazed-on top-of-bb shifter-cable guides -- all the bikes with playing-card decals seem to use the clamp-ons.

Plain club logo on HT and ST between world bands. Common to have contrast color seat panel. '73 Holes in crown disappear, now only club in top. club logo on head tube, first year of wreath decal on ST. Some of them were printed "colors in reverse" and appear to have an indistinct edge. Last year of clubs cut in all 3 lugs. '74 Club in bottom lug only. Club in top of crown. club cutout in small fork tang. Same graphics as '73 but printing problem fixed on wreath decals. '75 may be the first year of crown with both the club and the word "Colnago" engraved in the top. First year of the slash world stripes decals. '76 I think first year of Top tube cable guides.
