Colnago C35 at a Vintage bike jumble!

I took a ride out on my ’96 Master Olympic to a bike jumble at a cycling club, and bumped into a trader I know who had a stall there. here’s some of what he had


a nice De Rosa above, this circa ’96 Colnago Master Olympic, though the gruppo is a little earlier ..


a Colnago Dual CX frameset, which I had actually had a bid on via an on-line auction before, but pulled out as it did not have the correct forks, was missing cable guides, and was too small..006


notice the Colnago headtube stamp, same as on my as yet unidentified carbon frame..


Both were made for Colnago by Alan.

The trader also had a beautiful Colnago C35, sadly only managed to get a silhouette…


probably the most understated example I’ve seen ( or touched!), Campagnolo Super Record 11 gears and brakes with an original Colnago  C35 crankset, the trader seemed unaware of this less tasteful example for $22,500


he said he wasn’t selling his!
