Finished late last year except wheels. Purchased this bike from another member here (he knows who he is); who has also purchased and traded with myself. I made some minor changes, built new set of wheels, and more. Little bit stiffer than regular Super and Mexico frames; this is a 2nd generation frame, the first generation ('82 &'83) only had 2 grooves in the down tube. I believe this paint scheme was only used on 2nd generation Nuovo frames, different colors on different years ('84 had red and white scheme).

I think that paint work may have come on their "Superissimo" model (same year '86) also, but I have not seen a close up photo to determine if it had the "non-grooved" tubing. There are many misidentifications of 80's and earlier Colnagos due to custom builds from the factory and for specific buyer's requests. I saw someone selling a "Super" "Pantografata", but without any components; the main distinctive feature of that bike from a regular "Super". You can't tell the difference because you could custom order chrome wherever you wanted, or none at all.
