Diamond in the Rough Jan 13, 2010

Let’s see how many of you can guess what kind of frame this is before seeing the next photo.

Give up? Look at the fork crown.

Now sure, some will say this is a beat-to-shit junker, not worthy of a restoration. But a Super Record equipped Colnago of an unknown year might clean up nicely. I’m sure with a little investigative work, the owner will be able to track down the model and tubing. It’s so rusted out in some spots, it’s hard to see the lugwork. We’ll have to see what comes of this project. Hopefully Colin will update us with a photo, post-restoration in a few weeks. Or months?
