Hi Gary: Sounds like a great idea! I will link to it in the Classic Rendezvous when you get something up. I think a lot of the problem is Colnago's undeciferable or non existant serial numbers, which has frustrated many. Even with key features and stylistic markers, it makes it impossible to definitively establish the year pf manufacture...But "close guess " is good too, so keep up the good work!

Another Colnago enthusiast and myself have embarked on creating a website that will allow you narrow down the vintage of your Colnago. This is intended to run with a database of photos, identifying details and known frames. This will span 60's to modern day with the majority of (my) interest being OT years. I have received several emails from my inquiry about 6 weeks ago on an early 80's Super. As the framework is decided upon, I'll prod those of you that have an interest specifically in Colnago's for additional photos and information.

I hope that this work will be of value. I'm rather surprised it doesn't exist with the large amounts of Colnago's produced.
