Wow. Beautiful, outstanding restoration Greg.
What I'd like to know is.....how does she ride??
Two special Colnagos that will be of interest to anyone who has even a
minute curiosity about this marque. There has been debate as to what a
pre 1970 Colnago should look like and the 'playing card' style is what
has been accepted as the earliest one most are familiar with.
Determination to find the truth together with hard work and assistance
from friends, has created a correct and gorgeous 1969 Colnago Super in
original color with correct varnish fix decals. I am sure no other
example this complete and accurate exists.
Also of interest to many is the 1959 Colnago Freccia pista that now
resides here in Australia. A sublime and historically significant work
of craftsmanship. I have detailed and high definition pictures which
demonstrate the genuine patina of the last 49 years and the state of
preservation of this remarkable museum piece.
As a result of the study of these and other early Colnagos, aspects of
design and construction which link the early 60s, through the Molteni
years and into the early 70s have become apparent and I am in the
process of documenting this into a legible and logical form.
