Hi listmembers,

a friend recently bought a "Colnago"-labelled frame of french ebay. I assume its pretty sure it ain't a Colnago, but what is it then? the unique features include: A Cinelli BB case with a 4-digit Serial nr. picture: http://forum.tour-magazin.de/attachment.php?attachmentid=85628&d=1186433527

head tube area is fillet brazed picture: http://forum.tour-magazin.de/attachment.php?attachmentid=85756&d=1186533272

seat cluster is fillet brazed and seatpin is fixed with 2 bolts Pictures: http://forum.tour-magazin.de/attachment.php?attachmentid=85754&d=1186533272 http://forum.tour-magazin.de/attachment.php?attachmentid=85627&d=1186433527

rest of the frame is lugged

dropouts are nicely brazed in, with an "open end" to the tubing. http://forum.tour-magazin.de/attachment.php?attachmentid=85759&d=1186533272

i have not yet seen a frame with these features. KOF? Casati? Japanse?...

any hints? :)
