I have a very similar colnago frame that had been repainted, as best as I could tell it was an 83 mexico, like the one shown here:
It also just seems like colnago made a lot of really similar frames and didn't document their different models very well. I've even seen really early masters that had similarly crimped tubes and decals. Either way it's a beautiful bike, definitely something to get excited about.
I'd say 1983 or later based on the brazed-on front derailleur mount, under bb shell cable guides and crimped top tube. Definitely not a Super (my wife has one), but could be a Mexico or Master. JMHO.

Yes. That was the color of mine originally. I have read from others helping me on a different forum, that possibly these frames ran from the late 70's to the early 80's like 83 or so, but none were 100% on it. I keep searching and just always find the same info on it. I'm not going to stop though.

Yea I was thinking the same thing. Like cmsanfor said, all the info is not well documented for this type of frame. It is definitely not a master, a master has more ovalized tubing on their top and down tubes.
