198x Colnago Super

Hey guys. Looking for an evaluation on a Colnago Super that a friend and I had plans to build up until they lost interest.

Thanks!

Based on notes on the web, it is probably from between 1981 and mid 80's.

I am having troubles deciding if that is original or an older restoration.

Does "Colnago" on the downtube and seattube appear to be painted on or a decal?

As I understand it, COVID is turning the bike market upside-down. I see quite a few people asking for > $1000 for frames on E-Bay, but I think the ones that are selling are going for closer to $400 to $600.

By the mid 80's, there were quite a few better Colnago bikes available.

I’ve offered my beautiful, professionally resprayed, Super frameset to a couple of members in the $400 + shipping range with some interest but no takers. Maybe it brings that much on eBay but you’ll have an extra ~$50 in fees.

...I bought one recently off the local CL here (frame and fork only) very similar to that but from 1980 or 1981 with similar paint issues. I just fixed the paint and built it up the wheels and the other components. I paid $350 for that frame. That's more than I usually invest in a bare frame, but I had never owned a Colnago in my size, so it was worth it to me. Yours looks like it has better chrome, but I just painted the chrome fork to match.

Does not look original to me... Could be an older resto, as you say. Clear coat and decals are not quite period correct, I think. Colnago was wrapping the decals over the finish on most (letters on a solid backgtound), and the others the finish was not so "wet" looking.

Yeah, but we're cheap, you know that... Did you post it? Not that I'm in the market.

Cheap would be putting it nicely but hey, Iím right in there with everyone!

Have not posted the Colnago but did offer it to some members looking for a 58cm frame. Too nice for me to ride and am kind of thinking about using it as a wall display.
