Colnago Mexico ESA 1988

001

I bought this from a Gentleman who was the chair of an amateur cycling club, so I guess it’s an ex-pro frame given the number tag under the top tube.

I will add a 1988 Campagnolo Chorus gruppo I took from a donor bike, that is aged, so will complement the frame.

I tried out the bull bars,

but I don’t really like the look aesthetically,so I’ll use Cinelli stem and Cinelli Giro drop bars.

This feels right!

the top tube bears a little scar,

but the underside is in better condition…

here’s the frameset partialy built up with a 1988 Campagnolo Chrous 7 speed gruppo,

oh, and on a 1988 Cinelli bike stand….
