Colnago Nuovo Mexico?

Hi, Can anyone help verify this Colnago? The seller says its a 1982 Nuovo Mexico. By that account the levers and brakes aren't original, but the rest of the components seem to be Super Record. Can anyone hazard a guess at how much it's worth?
Thanks!

Hard to judge condition with dark pictures. Vintage assessment looks right. I don't know when the chain stay bridge was removed for the Mexico. It looks like a Super for sure though. Superissimo of the era had chrome head lugs. There is variation in what is painted and not. My Superissimo has chrome socks on the front fork with chrome chain stays under the paint.

Hazard a guess? Often these were F/F that were built to the owners configuration. The XA stem might not be original either. I would think the price might be between 900 - 1300, depending on the market. This time of year is not great.

Nice looking bike and I suspect someone with more knowledge with chime it with better info and hazardous guess!

I would have said a bit lower, $800 to $1000, unless the condition is really great, and original. But who knows, pretty gets bought, for sure.

Aero hoods seem out of place (or is that just my personal prejudice showing)?
I can't tell model without better pics. Chainstays, tubes, lugs. Parts is parts, (they are and were easy to change).

Either a Nuovo Mexico or Super. Decals and lack of chrome on the head lugs makes me lean towards a Super. Timeframe is definitely correct, noting the shaped top and down tubes.

My '83 Mexico is very similar to what you've posted; note the chrome and decal differences:



Will be under a grand due to the mix of parts and lack of pedals.

Yo DD, that's a stunner for sure. Are you saying you plan to sell it for under 1k? I hope not.
