Colnago Super Saronni,full campagnolo pantographia!

Colnago Super,in Saronni red,

the legendary frameset.

I polished the stem up.

I just need to polish up the seat post

The Beppster, though I think this is a profiled super

The Man again, this time with attitude

I’m changing the crankset, putting the old chain ring above

on my Nuovo Mexico

Colnago Tricolour pantographed !

Franco Chioccioli In the Giro of 1988,

I got the t shirt

and the wheels

Ambrosio Metamorphosis Colnago Corse tubular rims, with

Colnago hubs and skewers!

Unbelievably good fortune, I got the whole set basically for less than the cost of  buying rims separately and building,

and I got more chance riding a unicorn than finding those engraved hubs.

I’m not sure if the hubs are Campagnolo or Ofmega, engraved with the C and Clover details of Colnago.

I found another…

with sloping crown forks, which I’ll put in the stock list.

Benotto bar ribbon,

I cleaned the fork crowns up,

and I finally managed to find the right shade paint to re furb the tri color guppo

the bike stand I bought for 25 euros from a bankruptcy sale ,

008

I got the stand home, and got round to cleaning it about ten days later,

then I found this stamp on it…

002

Cinelli!!!

I decided against over polishing what needed to be done, as the frame

has a few slight blemishes here and there, so the finish I’m after is

“‘original condition”

I took the deep scratches out of the stem and seatpost with  the marvelous Dremel tool

 with the sanding components,wet and dry paper,and then polishing.

I re filled the caliper detailing

005

just needs a chain and wiring, and I dropped the levers a little after this,

  1. Which years are your two frames? Are the decals specific to those years?

    I have what looks to be a mid 80s Super which has a Mexico fork. I’m planning on repainting it in the red and using a decal style like on your frames as it is very similar to the Saronni decals. I’ll also be repainting a Saronni pista frame, and was going to build up a ‘matching pair’. You can see pics of the frames here. http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=58347&start=425#p1310024

    What are your thoughts on their ages, and correct decals(which I’ll be sourcing from Cyclomondo)?
