This collection has been the talk of a few vintage bike forums recently..
quite something , Team GAN provenance as well , I wonder if it will reach asking price !
I visited the factory last year , and was very kindly sent a file of the Colnago 35th Anniversary catalog (among others!) , which , as far as I am aware, has not been seen online until now….Thanks again Laura@Colnago!
F MOSER SUPER PRESTIGE FRAME SET
Sold this recently , a beautiful Colnago VIP 2000 in Team Mapei Decor…
more Colnago team framesets will follow…
Picked this up yesterday from a fellow collector , (thanks again Peter!) , an Eddy Merckx MX Leader time trial frameset , with Columbus MXL tubing…
I picked up an ITM Dual time trial cockpit and a set of Dura ace7402 brake levers..
The late Robin Williams was a rider and prolific collector..
“In total, 87 bicycles from Williams’ collection are being auctioned off. Proceeds will be donated to two charities Williams supported: The Challenged Athletes Foundation and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. ” source Mashable
The auction is being hosted online by Paddle8 , and amongst the 87 bicycles is a Colnago x L ‘ Carrera Futura Pista , possibly what will be the highest yielding of that limited number of frame sets.
Whilst at the Colnago factory , I told the saint that made it happen , Laura , that I’d ridden a Cinelli Laser tandem at L’Eroica XX Gaiole , that weekend just past…
,thanks and respect to Colombus brand manager Federico Stanzani for making this happen, a true L’Eroica Hero, I met him on the 137km first feed stop with an slr camera over his back,( great to meet you Federico ) , pictured below with my ‘Concurse D’ Elegance 2016 ‘ enterant , a 1984 Colnago Super CX , made with Columbus steel…
Laura said she’d worked with Mr Antonio Colombo himself , and that his art gallery maybe of interest….so off I went…
I was greeted by Mr Colombo’s assistant , who showed me round the gallery , and very kindly let me picture this, one of 21 Cinelli Laser Pista , signed by Mr Colombo..
I was then introduced to Mr Antonio Colombo himself…
Mr Colombo was kind enough to talk with me for a while, a truly amzing man, we talked about what he’s doing with Red Hook, Mike Giant, and the Mash crew , and a little about art, a true inspiration to me, to be with him and Mr Colnago on the same day is something I will never forget, I just wish I asked Mr Colombo about his time with Keith Haring.
Thanks to Laura @ Colnago, Federico @ Columbus
Mr Colombo’s asssitants,
and Mr Colombo, thank you for your patience and hospitality, and thanks for the joy you bring!
