Colnago Super - Estimate?

In my continuing release of bikes to the world, next up is my 1985 Colnago Super...great riding bike! My "go fast" bike...but...I do not "go fast" any longer! So...thoughts on pricing it for eBay, CL...and/or here...

Specs...

Material: Columbus SLX

Seat Tube CTC: 55 cm
Seat Tube CTT: 56 cm
Top Tube CTC: 56 cm
Head Tube: 5.25"
Rear Gap: 125 mm

Components

RD: Campy Super Record
FD: Campy Super Record
Cranks: Campy Super Record, Colnago Panto
Shifters: Campy Super Record
Brakes/Levers: Modolo Speedy
Headset: Campy
BB: Campy
Freewheel: Regina 7 Speed
Seat Post: Campy Fluted, Colnago Panto
Saddle: Turbo Bernard Hinault
Stem: 3TTT Quill Stem, Colnago Panto
Handlebars: Cinelli Giro d'Italia
Wheels: Campy Hubs with Mavic G40 Rims
Pedals: Campy Super Record

So...very nicely appointed bike! Now, for pics...
















Looking forward to the thoughts/opinions...

My sharp eye for the tiniest of details tells me that is a Superissimo and not a Super�� That being said I'm not enough of an expert to know what the difference is between those models.

That is a sweet bike, but I would it would be even sweeter if you could come up with some SR levers and brakes to complete the group - would make it more appealing to the person who wants to one stop shop for his grail Colnago. I would think typically this would fetch around $1400 on eBay but nobody seems to be buying right now and I would suggest waiting until next spring if you want top dollar. Saronni red btw is a popular color. I think there's a similar one on eBay now.

That is my size and I'd make you an offer but I'm a skinflint and you wouldn't like it ha ha.

I always "assumed" that Super was just short hand for Superissimo...and...in the actual ad's, I will use the full term...just too lazy here!

I thought about changing the brakes...but...will start with the current condition, as this is the way it was originally for the original owner (whom I bought it from)...

I am willing to be patient, but, if I hesitate to downsize my fleet, I might not do it!

Wow I always thought the Super and Superissimo were different models. Shows what I know.

Here's the one I was thinking of. There's another with an insane asking price.

Colnago Superissimo 60cm with Campagnolo and Cinelli components | eBay

I'd say full retail to the I have to have this person would be $2000, maybe $100-$200 less with the paint chips and non-matching brakes. $1000 to fly out the door. $1475 should tempt someone who wants one but is also looking for a bit of a deal. As mentioned, bikes sell better in Spring than Winter.

Well it would make a nice companion to my incoming modern fancy Colnago.

Alas, though, I need to make room (physically and financially) before there are any new additions.

Cables routed in front of the bar? Amateur. Deduct $800 for that egregious error!







...not at all serious. I have a bike with cables routed in front. Just referencing a recent main forum thread.
That bike is beautiful.

The paint foibles hurt.
The pantographng helps.
Modolo brakes, discount to acceptable.
Good Size.
I have been watching transaction prices of Colnagos in the 55-56 CTT range…
Not a terrific market of late, maybe Election Apprehension.
Now that that is over… $1,500 Max. Market may be $1,300 though.

Exactly how I looked at it. I recently did a Campy SR market analysis in anticipation of a purchase and value 8/10 or 9/10 SR groups at $900 +/- for completeness and minor condition issues. Pantographing adds a lot of value.... Colnago frames have inherent value.

Pantographed Colnago seat post: Double valued at $200+
Pantographed Colnago crankset: Double valued at $250+
Pantographed Colnago stem: 5x valued at $150+

They are different models. The Superissimo frequently came with chrome head lugs and other chrome embellishment. The Superissimo came into the lineup later in time, around 1980 I think.

No one has mentioned a part out...would that drive more value? With this bike, I have the history, so I kind of hate to do it...but...it is not (brakes!) exactly what one would consider original (even though it is completely as purchased originally)...

Hmmm...quite probably so. It all depends on the condition of the panto stuff as to final values there. I for one would be interested in that seatpost at the right price

I think a valuation of right around $1300 is correct, though if I were going that high I'd personally like to see a Campy brakeset, but that's just me. Also, your frame is surely as advertised: Superissimo, from around 1983 or 1984. Chrome lugs and painted forks were specific to that frame. Supers didn't usually have chromed lugs (tho Mexicos did).

Beautiful. Popular size, has the right color + chrome for insurance. Bonus being original.

Change the cables to over bar, airbrush touch-up / blend the fork paint. Brakes are perfect as is. Leave it to the next owner. Campy SR brakes are over rated anyways.

Who cares what the season it is? Ebay is worldwide and it rarely snows in FL. Jeez.

Easy $1500 on ebay. Same hold on CL.

Take a look at the trash and rust, molested builds out there and then the asking. The OP's bike is an easy winner.
