colnago frame question

i was looking at a 1975 colnago super online wanting to buy it, its got all the right markings, 2 things i wasnt sure about. on the rear stays its stamped colnago and not campy and another it has a little knub on the rear of the head tube for a pump, i did a quick check and didnt see any other colnagos with that. is it fake. thanks

'Fake' can be a funny word. It could be a genuine Colnago but NOT from 1975. If it was an honest error by the seller but still a Colnago it would be 'misrepresented'.

OK, so I just looked at the pics...it's a Colango but its an early 80's to mid 80's Colnago. When the Colnaxperts wake up they'll better be able to date it. CycleArt could have added the pump peg.

i'm not worried about if its a 75 or a super, i just want to make sure i'm getting a colnago. i guess i'm just asking about the frame pump deal, did colnago have those on their frames?

Hmmm, let's see here. I just looked at my Colnagos and not one of them have "frame pump deals."

Admittedly, a small sample size.

My 80's Mexico has both a pump peg and Colnago dropouts.
