I can see what you mean regarding the 'crimping' on the downtube. Colnago developed the Total Spiral Conic SLX model with a crimped downtube around this time. But the Conic frame was only built with...

Sloar, your knowledge of this bike is hard to refute without bring into question your 'knowledge'. I must admit, my doubt aligns with Bianchigirll's (and others), but, then I re-read your paragraph...

Yeah, looks like a road frame. It really calls out to be built-up to see what it's like to ride and also to become a talking point over a nice coffee with your mates.

Great action photo.

$50 Canadian sounds like a real bargain especially when some of the components could sell for that.

I'm guessing at '84 '85 just looking at the seat stay caps.

There's a lot of nice stuff on the bike but not of the same era or gruppo. It is a very nice find.

I can see that the six arms are a definite plus when painting the Italian flag tri-colours in each arm's milled grove. (5 arms mean choices/decisions have to be made.)

Your Colnago is something special. This is 'the ultimate (or pretty close to it) as far as I'm concerned.

just a guess but I'd say your frame was produced between 1976 and 1980.

More pics of the frame features you described would help.

Good luck with your new bike. Worth - it's worth keeping!

Buckler team colours from around 1990. I think the team bikes featured Suntour Superbe Pro groupsets but you probably already knew that. Such a lovely bike.

I can't give you a definitive answer but I bought one in the 90's. I also got a 'pin-up girl' to go with the stem. I didn't use it for long as I felt it looked too heavy for the bike I put it on.
