The bike must have some liberal leanings because it doesn't appear able to turn to the right.


Little bit of a mish-mash on components. Super Record (SR) front derailleur, crank has SR rings, but the rear derailleur is Nouvo Record, while the headset is from a newer group than those. The front wheel [skewer] is installed backwards, but I can't make out the hubs. In any case, you'd need a list of the components, and a much better presentation to draw top dollar.

Spiff It Up A Bit

Agree with above - remove those cable housings and re-route them. New bar tape, or clean yours up. Replace all cables, true the rims. I'm guessing the weight is in the neighborhood of 21-22 lbs. Campy bits in the drivetrain. Can't tell on the brake calipers. This is a good bike.

you should ask $350 minimum as it stands, maybe higher depending on your market. With a complete and careful re-build, waxing and touching up the frame, shining the components - $425 or highter. Can you provide photo details of the head tube lugs, seat stay/seatpost lugs and bottom bracket lugs?

Some Colnago experts may weigh in with those better photos.

$800 min. after some attention to details. Maybe more.

This wouldn't take very much to straighten around for sale.

Probably a couple of hours, some housing material, handlebar tape, a good swift cleaning, and I'd go through all the bearings.

Maybe a new chain as well.

I sold an 82 Super last spring that wasn't in very good condition on our local CL in a day.

For about the same price.

If this bicycle were in the Twin Cities I'd probably be forced to buy it.

Grady, are you trying to corner the Twin Cities Colnago market?

A bad, bad sweet tooth.

That's what I have for these!

Heh Bob, I get to start riding again this weekend.

We'll have to get together. How about a short ride soon and some coffee?

Sounds good. I am going to have a 'procedure' on Friday so I won't be able to ride for a while.

On the cable housings, all you need to do is remove the whole stem and bar assembly, feed it through the frame from left to right, and put it back on. I'm guessing the opposite is how this disaster happened in the first place

AS IS I would offer $600 a little more.. if the FRAME is clean and buy it.
Then.
Option 1. Hang Frame for later Sale with Full Campy 2012 11sp Athena Group Build and Sell for $3000.00
Option 2. Strip, Clean, refurbish and rebuild back with period correct parts and Sell for $1200.00 +
Option 3. Convince Seller "ARE YOU CRAZY? That's your COLNAGO!" Then charge HIM $500 to rebuild it. Win/Win
Option 4. See option 3. It could be you.
