    1975 Colnago Super Pantographa

    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! 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.

    1975 Colnago Super Pantographa

    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".
    Life is an illusion...

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