Yes, if it's got the fillet brazing, it's a classic. I had to trade in my Schwinn Superior, but I'll always miss that bike. It's got so much style and is a nice ride.

Brooklyn commuter

I only ride a few miles a day to work and back, and it's all city traffic, so a fixed gear makes a lot of sense for me. I love this bike. Sometimes I'll take it through the park on the way home and...

Thanks to everyone for all the useful information. No definite answers, but since this is a 1983, it sounds like it might be a Colnago. Hey, I'm OK with that!
