Geez, where to start?

There's no way to ID any bike from any manufacturer by simply tossing out a name. It's like saying "how do you identify a Schwinn?" - there are too many models spanning decades of production.

So, try this link. It's generally accepted as quite accurate and will get you started. If you actually have a bike in hand or access to one, you can check it against the details contained within. Good luck!

And here's one more:

You may have one particular Colnago in mind? If you have this Colnago or have access to this Colnago, post a few photos of key areas such as the lugs as well as an overall photo. I'm sure you will get some assistance identifying this Colnago.

If it's just a probing or general question, then the answer is basically, yes.

Ernesto is quite the marketeer so you know one when you see it.
Bikes don't stand alone. They are two tired.

Welcome to BF C&V.

We love detailed pics. It's the only mutually satisfying way to answer your questions.
Post 'em up, wait for answers. Expect a few questions.
Date codes on original components are good indicators of the year assembled.
Vintage, modern, e-road. It is a big cycling universe.
