    Seems like a very good deal to me - modern Campy and Colnago steel for under $600? Yeah, I'd say you made out like a bandit

    You know, I thought by the mid/late 90's all the steel Colnago models had the straight-blade fork; the one on here is curved. Do you know if it's original to the bike?

    ^ Yes, that's a Colnago fork, unquestionably. I am just wondering out loud if it was meant for an earlier frameset. I first saw the straight bladed forks in a Bicycle Guide road test of a 1995 Colnago Master. This Decor paint came along in 1996 IIRC. I'm thinking it would include a straight bladed fork.

    I could be wrong, of course - I am not as knowledgeable about modern stuff

    Happy B’day Dude! I just turned 52 on the 7th and treated myself to an old Schwinn Suburban that I found at the dump that wasn’t my size. Your 57cm Colnago is a perfect fit for me; I think I see a trade happening here.

    Awesome find! I won't tell you what I laid down for my '78 Super a few weeks ago, but it was an awful lot more than $600! Nice bike, great price.

    Nice find! That Mirage stuff is not bad, I had it on my F. Moser that I bought a few years ago. Was going to replace broken or worn-out parts by a higher-end stuff, but it's still all original. Just needs a regular tune-up, but that's part of the fun for me.

    I've seen the Precisa on these as well.

    I thought it might be a Euro model.

    I ride with a fellow that bought a yellow nos Technos from a shop in Berlin.

    Similar fork to this one.

    He asserts both frame and fork were nos when he bought them.

    Could be a shop mixed and matched frame and fork.


    ...and come to think of it, I had a Master Piu with a similar curved fork.

    Rode fine if I recall.

    Happy B-day. Real nice Colnago.

    When I bought my Tommasini they had a Colnago right next to it for the same price. Had a cool Champagne paint job and was really nice. It was a hard decision but I chose the Tommasini, only because the paint on it was over-the-top.

    I still covet that Colnago.

    What a neat Colnago you scored there. Happy Birthday to you also. You should visit us in the 50+ forum too. Lots of cross over with C&V these days.

    Nice score and happy birthday! Hopefully my wife see's this thread when the time comes and gets the hint. lol. I like the curved fork over a straight blade model anyday if it's original or not. My Colnago Mix came with a straight blade carbon for but the previous owner installed a curved Orbea carbon fork. Yeah it's not the same brand but I actually like the look of it more.

    I bought myself a pretty nice Battaglin last Christmas, and
    I hope you get as much enjoyment from your own self
    selected present as I have from mine. Nobody knows what
    you want as well as you do.

    I, too, think that's a pretty good use of 600 bucks.
