    A lovely frame that's for sure. I agree that it looks like a circa. 1986 frame and would suit a few Campagnolo group sets like later model Super Record. Victory, C-Record or perhaps that wonderful...

    Just a further footnote:

    It took me about 30 years for me to get a Colnago Super of that vintage so I'm a little jealous of you right now . hahaha.

    And….2 things……One…..that garage is not...

    I reckon you've got a 1982 Super or Mexico and it does look to be very original. It looks like a Campagnolo Nuovo Record group set with a Super Record seat post and brakes. The frame tubing is...

    The grails I finally acquired - Colnago & Cinelli - why - because I could never afford them back in the 80's.

    The grail I will never achieve - Hetchins curly - why - images in books, etc. Why will...

    Greetings and I'm pleased to see photo's of your Carbine - definitely an iconic Aussie brand. There should be info available on the web and the museum hopefully will respond.

    Ahhh - it happens like that quite often. I find that I can ride a bigger frame with not too much trouble but I can't ride a bike comfortably even if it is 1cm smaller than my preferred size. After a...

    I think Giacomo 1 is pretty well on the money thinking it's a 'Super' or perhaps a 'Mexico'. I think the build date could be a little later - perhaps 1984/5 considering the seat stay caps. I really...

    Sorry I can't help but id does look quite unique. I can understand your interest in identifying the builder. It seems that you have done quite a bit of preliminary detective work already and I agree...

    I must admit to being a sucker for fancy lugwork, to me it suggests a builder's pride in his work. I'd also 'kill' for a Colnago Arabesque. I couldn't open the attachment to see your actual bike...
