1977 (?) Colnago Super

Hello,

I am completely newbie on this forum and almost as newbie for vintage bikes. I would like to have Colnago experts' take on the value of a 1977 (my eye, not sure) Colnago Super, mostly mounted with Campagnolo super record parts. The RD may be more 80s and the headset has no marking on it (can it be a pista?). I asked for seized seat post and stem. Seatpost is not seized but the guy had no tool on hand to check the stem (hum...). He advertised it as a 1972... I am not an expert but I really don't believe it is a 1972. Thanks in advance!

Follow this link for pictures (just put the standard h t t p s : / / in front of the following, too newbie to post urls : drive.google.com/drive/folders/17qOt4lgvo3fXnx9hwhllyvim1qOqy7Aq?usp=sharing

Aside from the klunky loading and no I did not want to download their software... This is an interesting frame. The most interesting part to me is the size of the tops of the seat stays, Colnago for a long time use double taper seat stays, this bike does not have that. Unusual. May not even be plugs... would need much better images and both sides to know.
Warhorse paint condition, but acceptable. Looks like a 57 or 58 measured center to top. To the right buyer, $1,200. to everyone else $900.

Sorry for the non conventional way to show pictures... my newbie status is ending soon. And thank for your comments.

Maybe another newbie evidence but what CR means?

I like this bike and it would be a great first C & V bike for sure. They are fast and nimble.

I like the panto bits such as the crank, stem and even pump and they add value. The original saddle is worth some big bucks as well. The paint should polish up ok, it doesn't look dead. Scratches are scratches, not much you can do there and decals look good.

Has the bike been serviced? My guess is no being that its missing a spoke, and the tires look beat and maybe mismatched. Hoods can be pricey if you want to add them. I agree with repechage about the seat stay caps. They should be scalloped, and from the one pic, they don't look like it. Kind of weird. And yes, the RD should be Nuovo Record. Those are some things you can use for bargaining purposes.

Not sure what he is asking, but I would start at $800 and see how it goes from there.

I think this is spot on. I wouldn’t repaint it. Paint is not great but it’s not horrible considering the age of the bike. You could touch up some of the spots. To me bikes in original condition with parts are worth more even if a little saltier shape.

The seat stay tops may be convex... just Big, and therefore unusual.
the additional branded bits, seat, pump, pantographed parts... at auction it could sell for more.
size- I must amend my estimate, I think 56-57 center to top.
and yes, no repainting this one.

It's definitely not a 1972, as it has the short dropouts with Portacatena holes. These were introduced in late 1977 for the 1978 model year. Also, it has the CPSC compliant hubs, front derailleur and brakes introduced for 1978. However, it doesn't have the front derailleur hanger, introduced circa 1982, so I'd place it 1978-1981.

Edit: Non-embossed seat stay caps and chain stay should make it 1978-1979.

I have a ‘77 Super with a racing heritage purchased from the original owner and builder. Great riding, handling and quite light. Mine is the 57cm and weighs just a bump over the 21lb mark. Fun and a real head turner.
