    1971 Colnago ???

    Sorry i dont have pictures, although i looked at this bike yesterday, didnt bring a camera however! blue colnago super. rear der patent 1971 clamp on cable guides and shift levers. has the clover on the lugs. fork crown is chrome with yellow clover in it. also has the dots on each of the crown end pieces. the owner wasnt sure of vintage and im not too sure either. also has the flat quick release pieces on the brakes. from what i read, 71.72.73s all seem pretty much alike(except for the value, i think). before i offer 1000.00 for it (offered 500.00 but no interest) i want to make sure. anything else i can look for in case i return? thanks much. ps its in very good original condition except for a small dent in the center of the top tube-its on the underside so its not visible unless you look under the bike.

    It's probably a '72, maybe a '73 if it has the clubs in all the lugs. It's not a '71 - which is not like the '72 and later models but has a completely different decal set. Most '71's also do not have the club in the crown, though mine did.
