I would say pre 1980 given the clamp on front derailleur and the over the BB cables and also the squarer fork shoulders. Lug work not chrome (which it wouldn't be for a super anyway) but then looks like it may have had a rough repaint too. Would say a Mexico about 1978.

Dearest List, A local guy I met through buying and selling parts is listing the Colnago Super below for auction on eBay. I took a look at the bike for him and did my best to help him identify components, etc. The bike is far from "correct", as it has a mix of Nuovo, Super and C-Record bits...but could really make a nice project or "daily rider". I know VERY little about Colnagos and would love to hear some basic tips on dating and identifying Italian vs. Mexican frames of this vintage. What are

your thoughts on this one, fellas? Thanks for your help.<blah> QitemZ230145494950QQihZ013QQcategoryZ98084QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewI tem
