Your frame looks to be in VERY GOOD shape.
Folks, the OP showed pictures of 2 different bikes, one in great shape and the other the subject of his repaint plans. The 1981 Colnago is indeed in great shape but the other one to be repainted looks to me that it has already had a so-so paint job in the past, judging from the lug lining and lack of decals. It certainly needs fresh paint.

To the OP: I've always been partial to the orange, but the green of that year is great too.
