Hi everyone,

I'm new to this board and forums in general. Excited to post my new build here to share with everyone.

Was wondering if anyone with some experience can tell me what year/model a Colnago I picked up recently is?

It's not the original paint so I'm thinking technically it could be something else.

I'm pretty sure it's a steel Master. The fork also looks steel as well. Both look authentic.

I´m guessing 85, it is a pure guess, my friend from school (8th grade) had a colnago which he rode for years, it didn´t have the have the adjust screws at the rear wheel but also I can´t remember the model, this was around 87, I think they went away from the adjust screws on the road bikes...I think

Hmmm... l don't know but I think it's much newer than '85. They didn't even have threadless forks back then, and this one has derailleur cable stops for ergo shifters as opposed to downtube shifters. Might even be one of the "reintroduced" classics. Not sure why anyone would paint over the beautiful chrome stays however, unless they were in very rough shape. But the repaint looks to be a good match as the creamy white seems to match very well the white of the paneled decals on the downtube and seattube. And the decals look to be pretty complete and original, even the "warning" decal by the brazeon. But I don't know... I would have thought the newer ones would not have the cutout BB. So perhaps an older frame with a replacement threadless fork, which contradicts me first sentence thinking it was much newer than '85. Is there a serial number etched on it anywhere?

You are right calnago, should be a number near the rear derailleur mount

It's a Master Piu' frame (1987/88) with a Precisa Nivacrom fork from late '90s

You gentlemen are gods! Great eyes.

Ok now I feel a lot better it's actually a real Colnago Master.

Calnago - might be sacrilegious to admit but as you mentioned...I absolutely love and prefer the complete repaint. The color looks even better in person, just pops.

Found the serial number at the quick release drop outs.

What does the Columbus tubing sticker say? Closeup pic? Even though I'm sure it's a replacement sticker, whoever had it painted looks as though they wanted an authentic job, so I don't think they would have applied a sticker indicating a tubing that is not that bike. Just curious what it is. Thanks.

It looks great as it is IMO. I would add a Campagnolo groupset (no Shimano, no Sram please), italian seat post and cockpit and Hyperon wheels.
It will look nothing short of amazing!

Already have in hands 2015 Campy Record mech groupset, Record seatpost, and Shamal Ultras with dark labels.

Still deciding between Deda 35 bars/stem or 3T stealth Ergonova bar/stem combo.

Planning to put DA 9000 on a future project though :D - likely a C40/C59/C60
