Colnago Master Pursuit? Early 90's Columbus Tubing

Hi All, I recently bought this Colnago Master which looks to be a pursuit frame.

Does it look to be a genuine colnago? There is no Ace cut-out on the BB but looks to be early 90's so presume that was on earlier models.

There is colnago engraved on the tubes that lead to the rear wheel and the dropouts have colnago and a serial number engraved

The forks have several ace's engraved.

What would this frame be worth? Any ideas where I can source parts like BB etc?

Thanks in advance

It's a time trial frame, and the fork is backwards. Frames like this are no longer legal for sanctioned events, so the market is collectors. Parts should be standard road parts, avail from your LBS or online. It looks to be legit Colnago.

Value ??? I say its worth what you paid, at least to you. But I am curious, your not knowing the kind of frame and the name of the " tubes that lead to the rear wheel" (seat stays)makes me think you are not well schooled in vintage bikes, so why did you buy it?

Thanks for the reply. I am road bike rider who has an interest in vintage bikes but am very green in terms of the names of components or parts etc.or what I am doing haha That is why I bought this frame as a project to learn more about building and maintaining a bike. I understand it is a track bike but it appears to be a pursuit style frame with the sloping tubes and 700c rear to 650c front wheel. am I wrong in saying that?

Not a track bike or a pursuit bike. It's a road bike built for time trialing.

Nit sure if it's a 650 or 700c on the front, there were both made. It's not a track bike, it's a time trial road bike
