Is this evidence that there are still deals to be had on Ebay, as it were, or is this not a Colnago? Looks correct to me.

Ciao, Mark Agree Southfield MI USA
I took as close a look at this frame as was possible, with the limited
pictures available, and I would have been a keen bidder if it had more
resemblance to an early Colnago than what appeared in this auction.
Fender eyelets were my first concern and the chunkiness of the lugs
which looked as though they had never seen a file was my second. The
fork crown had some hints of early Colnago, but only hints. Decals were
early 70s style and the sizing of the DT decals was wrong and the
outlining of the ST decal makes me believe that this is a replacement
set which has been available for quite a while and is noticeable due to
it's inaccuracies. Cable guides brazed on BB shell didn't occur until
Then again, as little is known at all about 60s Colnagos...I might have
missed a bargain.
Speaking of bargains, remember the Gloria frame that sold a little while
back for over $5K? well two Garibaldina Extra frames went for over $1200
and $3700 respectively and both were far superior to the $5K sale. Also, bivalent hubs for $700..my sympathy for the vendor as these have easily fetched over 2K in the recent past. Maybe a sign of a softening US economy. I am sure this will be a temporary aberration for an economy that does not realise it's true strength. Greg Softley Coffs Harbour Australia
