Subject: [CR]Colnago RDV For Sale

I will be culling my herd a bit over the next few weeks due to some space limitations and this is the first bike I am offering for sale. Others will include several more Colnagos, an '84 Team 7-11Murray by Serotta, Sean Yates '90 Team 7-11 Merckx, and Frankie Andreu's '96 Team Motorola frame and fork.

Colnago Roger De Vlaeminck model:

I purchased the frame and fork in 2007 from a seller in Belgium. The frame/fork were NOS and had never been built up. I had the bike professionally built up by a local independent mechanic. It is a 56 cm (Colnago sizing).

I had a 1979 Colnago Mexico I had acquired in 2006 that was not my size. It was raced for a year by the original owner after he purchased it new. He then swapped the running gear to another frame, installed brand new running gear on the Mexico (which also then received a full CyclArt restoration), and the bike was retired to display status. The running gear on the bike was virtually new when I purchased the complete bike and had less than 500 miles of use.

I took all of the "new" running gear from the display bike and installed it on the NOS RDV frame. The parts included a Campagnolo Super Record group (with SL pedals and an NR BB) and some really unique items such as a Regina SL freewheel (7 speed, 12-20), Cinelli VIP Giro d'Italia bar (64-42, white leather wrapped) and stem (110 cm), genuine vintage TA chrome water bottle cage w/Campy bolts and washers, and an ultra-rare Campy Hi-Low rear hub. The rims are Ambrosio Synthesis and spokes are butted ACI. Campy toe clips w/Binda Extra toe straps (Colnago end buttons). I installed a new Selle San Marco Rolls saddle (with titanium rails and a smooth cover), a 172.5 Record crank w/52 SR & 42 NR chain rings (170 crank is available), new Tufo tubular tires, NOS blue rubber Campagnolo shift lever covers and new white cable housings/cables when I built up the frame.

This is a very unique, special frame in brand new condition. Ridden less than 100 miles since initial build. Photos available.

$2995, plus a $25 professional packing charge, and actual shipping costs.
