Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Help with Colnago identification

Hello,

I need some help with a Colnago bike I consider to buy.

The frame looks like a colnago master with beautiful chromed lugs,
only that the tubes are not made of steel but carbon.

Can anyone here tell me more about the frame. What year, what model,etc?

Thank you in advanced,
Matt

Lugged steel? I would assume it is a Master of some type.

Are you sure the lugs are steel?? I tried doing a google search on it and did not come up with anything... Does not look like Colnago's site has an archive.

There were a lot of fake colnagos back in the day, one of the reasons why he went to all paint and no decals for a period of time.

The lugs are cromed, and shaped exactly like the colnago master. I am sure it is a real colnago but didn`t find one ether on via google. I will go and take some pictures tomorrow if I get time and it is still available.
