Hello John welcome to the forums. We need more information about both but.... Colnagos are well known and loved bikes. I would say this one looks maybe early to mid '70s but I am not expert. more info on the components and frame material would help the Colnago geeks.



Chesini, which I know little about, is a very nice but unknown brand name. Again some better pics and more info will help.



Are you buying or selling these? Do a search on these names in the forums and you'll get lots of information.

I agree with BG above that the Colnago looks to be early-to-mid seventies Super model, and would be made with Columbus SL tubes and would be quite valuable with original Campy components. They look to be Nuovo Record. It is quite large however, larger than the Chesini. Can't really tell condition of the paint, but it does look like it was well used, and not really well maintained. Ragged bar tape, a well worn saddle, missing front tire, dirty rear tire and dingy cables all point to a well used bike that will need some real TLC. Tough to put a dollar amount to this bike because of the lack of close-up pics, but it's a large frame, likely original Campy group, and an early example, so I would venture to say it could fetch around $1000 or so on ebay, less on CL.

The Chesini looks to be in much better condition. They are a more obscure brand than Colnago, thus it would be cheaper, but I hear good things about them. Look's higher end with the chrome chainstays, seat stays and fork, but I can't see the Columbus sticker on it, so no telling what the tubes are, although I'm guessing SL or better. Maybe somebody better versed in Chesini could chime in.

Check to see which size fits you though, because these bikes are very different in that regard...

Hi im new to this Forum. My Name is Jason and I'm from Edinburgh (in Bonnie Scotland). I currently ride a Fuji Roubaix 1.

I have just recently bought this frame from a car boot sale, I just fell in love with the colour and design. I have no idea of the make/model any help would be much appreciated, The logo on the forks may be identifiable, but I've not succeeded as yet.



Many Thanks
Jason

Hi Jason. All I can tell from the pic is that shifters are on backwards. The style of the fork might suggest a late '80s model, and the headset is from '85ish and later.

It's on a bike stand but yes if my wife caught me with that on the furniture, i would find myself sleeping with the bike in the garage.

Your a lucky guy john!

Please do a thread on these two bikes in the C&V forum. A before and after clean-up would be great.

What are your plans for these bikes anyway?

Depending on the size I know a girl who might be interested in that Chesini.
