I would personally want to be sure it's a 70's Super, as Colnagos - and indeed vintage bikes generally - are often misdated, usually earlier than their actual year of manufacture.
Thanks for this info.

When Colnago diversified their lineup after the Super, we had so many choices.

All we did before that was choose a new color for the Super every other year or so!
