Hi Joseph,

The fork (I believe) was only available with the flat front and rear top vertical faces of the fork crown in 72-73 Colnago. But......The 72 - 73 with the 3 clubs in the frame lugs had club only on the top surface of the fork crown (no Colnago word). The only top fork crown in earlier Colnago that had no Colnago markings had a vertical front and rear face of not flat, but convex surfaces. I know just enough about Colnago to get myself in trouble but if the clubs are for real someone ruined a frame with the internal brake cable customization. Or is it a Colnago really?

Hi list members,

I was hoping someone here may be able to help me ID this frame:

It is currently badged up as a Colnago but the clover cutouts on the lugs do not have the normal flat base that one would expect. I have included pictures of the main detailing on the frame, it has a Cinelli investment cast bottom bracket shell and Campagnolo dropouts. Unsure as to whether the fork is original. In any case it is a nice frame but It would be nice to know a little more about it.
