Hello to the list,

You may or may not remember I posted a picture of a Colnago Super frame I had bought about a month ago that had had a rather ugly repair done on the lower head lug. In addition, it had a crease to the seattube, had had cable guides fitted by an amateur and been resprayed. I have contacted a frame builder (Argos Cycles, Bristol, UK) and they are confident of a satisfactory repair which will probably include replacing the downtube and lower headlug. So I am planning on a full rennovation of the frame which will run to around £400 GBP and would like to get the details correct.

Does anyone has images of a Colnago Super of the same period? Also, there was some controversy regarding whether this was in fact a Super. I think in the end the concensus was that it was and a few members recognised the unusual lugs as appearing on a few other 1969 machines. I would just like to be as certain as possible before I commit myselt to the build. Here are some pictures of the frame in it's current state, I can take some more if required.


Thankyou in advance for you replies and thankyou for the encouragement and information received last time.
