very weird. almost a Super, with the correct lugs, brake bridge, chain stay brace, cable guides, bottom bracket for a late 7os model. but then it has Suntour dropouts???
perhaps the decal for the tubing is incorrect, but paint looks pretty old and original. but where are traces of the other decals? in my experience, the tubing decal dies long before the colnago decals do.
perhaps the lugset was exported and the bike made overseas by some other manufacturer, but then why the clover cut out in the BB? also, the fork is not a colnago at all: sloping crown is too steep, on logo in the crown top, and has fender eyelets.
that toptube ding looks like a hard crash where the front wheel rolled all the way to the right. the Shimaon 600 set is in good condition, apart from the rusty freewheel, and looks like it alone may be worth the cost of the bike.
