Colnago Mexico OrO ?

Hi everybody,

This morning I saw on ebay this auction :

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Coln...item1c38de2a82

Is it a real one? Isn't it too expensive ?

Thanks for your answers !

Welcome Otter, thanks for your first post.

I think it is priced to sell.

The line forms to the rear please, ladies and gentlemen.

There are two of them on ebay at the present, one at $12k and the other just over $10k.

If you gots to have one there is a choice currently.

Christmas is coming guys, just that bright shiny object to appeal to the spouse and you...

I read an article in one of the major bike mags last month about a gold plated Colnago. It was given to Pope John Paul II I believe.

I'm not seeing thin plating on a bike bringing that type of premium - not from me anyway.

I might be a heretic - but that's tacky, and silly from a functional perspective.

My Vanilla cost well under this asking price...I'll let others determine which they'd rather have for themselves; for me it's obvious.

This asking price puts you in Rene Herse territory - a FANCY Herse. You could have a custom, top option, JP Weigle for this asking price.

I understand that there are people with a lot of cash, some of whom lust Colnagos...to the point that $12,000 isn't significant. I'm not one of them...to me it's a gaudy bike and there is nicer wall art for $12,000.

If I had that much disposable cash, I would not purchase this item. I would order a Vanilla and wait the 6 years and get something else nice to get me by til then!

Again, line forms to the rear.

For that amount, I could have a Kirk, Zanconato, and maybe sneak in a Mitch Pryor.

Or sub out the Kirk for a Bishop.

But let's be honest, this Colnago is clearly not for most of us.

It's always fun to dream though and I get a kick out of seeing the final sale prices.

If available.

Many of these ads are just balloons of implied availability.

Nice bike, I'd imagine Colnago only sold a handful of those at best.

gaudy?!?!

if i had one in my size i'm rockin my gold chains and rings and bringin back that 80's dopeboy stee


by the way for $10 000 this bike, better be 24k solid gold. It maybe a little flexy to ride but it would be worth it

I'd like it (of course). I think the asking price is reasonable but well outside my affordability.

It's advertised with a Grammo stem but the photo shows a Cinelli 1R (early model) which in this case is a better choice.

Restoring that could be a very expensive proposition depending on what's missing or needs replacing. The pics provided look like it doesn't need much. I'd do a thorough once over to determine what it needs and good from there. For instance, it needs brake hoods, that $50....
