That bike is more like '82, based on the details (under BB cable routing and what look to be the "Colnago" stamped chainstays). A fairly common Colnago from an era when, er, a lot were being produced. Not to say it's not a nice bike or wouldn't ride nicely too. The seller actually has it listed as '79-80 in the item description, BTW. He is referring to it as a "1972 Mexico model" or some such?based on the common mistake of attributing too much identity-wise to the Merckx hour record decal. That decal has created more mischief than the MC BB cutout on Carlsbad Masis. The bike is a Super, not a Mexico, from what I can see. All of which adds up to the absence of comment thus far from the Colnago crowd.

Seems a very desirable vintage, nicely kitted out. Nice looking bike.? item 150253237242.? My size, too.? I took a brief flyer on it but was quickly outbid.
