Selling this nice Colnago Mexico from 1979, with a nice Campagnolo Super Record panto groupset. I would say it is in very good condition. Top tube 53 cm ctc, seat tube 51 cm ctc
Asking 1000 GBP + shipping at cost. Feel free to ask any question or for more pics
I think you should add its a repaint , as it hugely changes the value
In your opinion.
I do not believe this is a repaint. Please check the pics I took when the bike just came to me. You can see the original primer right underneath and no signs of any repaint.
Color is not Saronni (didn't this come later?) red but Rosso Corsa. Paint is in very good condition indeed. I just did a very gentle cleaning of the frame and a very few paint touch-ups (only in the areas you see in these new pics) with a very little brush. It took me quite some time to find the righ touch up paint for a perfect (in my opinion) colour match. Afterwards, the frame has been waxed with carnuba wax and so it shines ;)
I have to admit I was thinking the fork had been repainted , but I 'm more oriented now to believe the contractor at some point in time just took an un-chromed fork crown and painted it all together. Who nows.....
Decals I 'd say are the ones used between 75 and 79 missing diagonal world's bands. I haven't put any new decal here. I'm not saying this is a rare bike but usually there are more from 1980 onwards and later new mexico ones around there.
Thanks for looking!
Sorry, forgot to add I believe this is (mainly) from 1979 (frame could be 1978)
I can split F&F if it helps to sell
Repainted super .
wrong decals, no columbus decal, those are decals for a Master
Fork or at least fork crown should be chromed
You can see by miles away this is a repaint
Recognize the decals ? Those didn't excist in the 70's because the Master didn't exist....
