Colnago Sport Before & After

Gotta show it off.
I got this early 80s Colnago Sport frame from @randyjawa a while back. I painted it with auto 2 part, built it mostly with Ultegra 10 speed and gave it to my grown daughter. She wasn't quite sure about the yellow tape. My other daughter really liked the yellow. This will be her first road bike. I wish I took more, better pictures but I got these.

Thanks I used Nasson 2013 Ford red candy. I have an 82 Saronni Red Superissimo with poor but original paint. Side by side the original is really close but just a little lighter and brighter from the under color. The red/purple balance was spot on. This color is a 2 part. I think a 3 part would have to be used to get it perfect. I also think to get a perfect match to Saronni Red (which I'm sure changed some over the years) you would have take your best educated guess on a color and still have an original example to look at side by side. I found this color by putting my bike against newer autos and judging how close it was.

I remember when Randy was selling that! Wow, did you ever give her a new life; that's a fantastic rehab job

Thanks for sharing the process and final pics. Nice to see a frame go from one Forum member to another and end up like this!

stunning!

I'd change a few small things though (when they need changing)

bar tape: get a honey brown tape that will match the Brooks saddle.... yellow is going to get dirty very quickly even if you wear gloves

cables: change them to brown to match the saddle and the brown bar tape

brake/shifter hoods: I'd go brown to match the rest

water bottle: I'd buy a Klean Kanteen reflect stainless steel (polished version with the cage) with a sports top

pedals: Shimano PD-A530 (clipless on one side and platform on the other)

This looks sooo much like the original! I am seriously astonished, wonderful job! I like to do something similar with a Saronni frame. Where did you get this spray paint exactly? I can't really find it on Google and I would like to use EXACTLY what you used
Thanks

Great job!


I think the brand name may have been NASON Paint.

I got it at a local auto paint supply. A Dupont dealer will sell Nason which is their economy line. 2013 Ford Red Candy is the color. All the auto paint dealers will have a code for that color in their brand. Paint cross reference.

It's a tiny bit dark when next to my 82 Superissimo, but I took my best shot after being a total pest to the guys at the paint store while deciding.

How is the paint job on the Colnago now if I may ask? Are there a lot of chips already or not? I heard from somebody else that if you repaint a frame yourself, the paint will get chipped very quickly..

Very nice job. It's ready for another 35 years before you will need to think about another facelift.

If its done correctly throughout the whole process of sanding, primer, paint and seal it can last for years to come. Small nicks and scrapes are common from normal use

It's a good thing that factory paint never chips.

The good thing about repainting a frame yourself is that touch-ups are a breeze, assuming you saved and set aside some paint for that purpose.

Love the color of that red, it's almost a "blood red" metallic. Would look good on any vintage frame especially with chrome.

this may apply if you rattle can it, -- but if paint is shot from a gun and is reasonable quality, it should last for years provided the surface prep is good
