I'm trying to get a rough idea on a Colnago frameset I'm considering buying.

Numbers stamped on colnagos never made any kind of sense to me..but maybe later production was marked by some system. We always date them by physical features, not stamped numbers.

"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee."
