57x57cm.

All original except wheelset and missing pedals (have period-correct in basement).

I need decals, on the hunt for the elusive 1975 yellow headbadge set (any tips?).

Man, that is sweet. Congrats! :thumb: I really like that rich green, on Italian bikes. It makes me think of the green in Italy's flag, obviously. But I'm stuck on aqua-marine in my mind, for the "best" color for Italian bikes, it makes me think of aqua-ducts. And swimming pools. ;)

Parts are in really good condition. Crank arm with the spider was replacement 172.5 and original was 170 - good thing for the parts bin.

Frame will need some TLC - touch up and decals, but luckily no dents or anything but light surface rust.

Beauty. That saddle has some sweet patina, or is it sweat patina?

Well, I hated to do it but this is now a simple 1975 Colnago Super. The Pantographa is destined for another project.

It turned out nice in any case - rides like a dream.

That's beautiful... and there's no such thing as "a simple 1975 Colnago Super".;)

Stunning. Enjoy!!

Love it. The patina is great too. mine's a repaint but frankly I prefer yours for the history written in the paint.
