    1983 Colnago Master Modern or Vintage Components

    I recently purchased a 1983 Colnago Master in near mint condition. The owner replaced the Super Record Components with a Veloce 9speed gruppo over 10 years ago. I having trouble deciding whether to keep the current set up or bring the bike back to its original condition with Super Record. I have most of the super record parts except for brake levers, hubs and brakes. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Here is a photo-and yes the bar tape has to go.

    Hello Welcome to the forums.

    it looks nice I would just leave it alone. finding a nice set of brakes may be expensive, and if I were to put Super Record back on this I would just run the current wheels anyway.

    What a beautiful bicycle.

    You aren't asking for an appraisal or dollar value, so I think this should be in the regular C&V section.

    Additional pairs of eyes to help and make suggestions. Folks like to see these Colnagos!

    That being said, I'd service and clean this hot rod pronto.

    Next, I'd opt for a black Regal, black Fizik bar tape, Veloflex Master tires, and that's it for now.

    Then I'd ride the daylights out of her.

    Oh yeah, I love your bike!

    I think it is great as is, Veloce is a very reliable group. White bar tape and a black saddle and you are made in the shade. Sell the original parts and you could upgrade some of the parts if you so choose.
