Hello,

I have a most unusual Colnago TT frame. I have put some pictures here;

I contacted Colnago but they only had the time to tell me that it was built over 30

years ago. Seems Ernesto and co. are rather busy. I have seen 2 others similar to

it, but thay did not have the sloping top tube or the low seat stays. There is also

an interesting picture from the Colnago 3àth anniversary catalogue;

The TT bike at the bottom left is almost identical. but neither the top tube nor

the rear stays curve.

My question is then, has anyone seen this model before? or know anything more

about it?

I would be extremely grateful since I have been looking around for a good while now.

Best regards,

Michael D'Arcy.

Lyon, France.
