Need help: is this a Colnago???

Hello and thanks for looking! I just bought this bike 2 days ago on ebay for 50 (60$). The photo on ebay was very bad, and I wanted to modify it a bit and use it as my everyday - shopping/trash bike. Now that i removed all the crappy stuff attached to it - and cleaned it a little, a real beauty showed off! I met a vintage-bike collector, and he thinks it is a colnago. i'm not sure... the decals are a little narrow and there is nothing else that says colnago but the stickers. But i know that Saronni indeed did ride for colnago! It has complete Shimano 600 Group and Mavic MA2 rims. The saddle is a Selle San Marco - Rolls. The condition of this bike is nearly perfect, maybe 200km ridden, only some storage marks. Does anybody know this bike???

It is a Saronni...made by Colnago. Go to www.bikelist.org and search the archives on Saronni for more info.

The Saroni's were badged by Calnago in the late 70's to early 80's. I think you got a deal!
