Unfortunately there is nothing at all in traditional bend. Very frustrating.

This is a picture of the drive side bottom bracket area, this is how the entire bike came. Looks just like dust but it's actually pretty hard to get off. Slowly stripping the frame part by part and will give the frame a cut and polish and full detailing and clean all the threads ready to re-assemble.

Be gentle please...
I'm presuming you'll remove the BB as well, and give the threads a good clean and a thick coat of copper based antiseize before reassembly.

Absolutely Calnago, i'll be very gentle, don't want to ruin anything. Will be taking every single nut and bolt off the frame, cleaning all threads and using appropriate grease for re-assembly. This morning took the bottle cage bolts off, polished them with autosol metal polish and cleaned the threads. Will hopefully get around to doing the BB tonight.

Well, in my garage I had two ITM bars but they're already on bikes, and found a box of old bars etc...
Looks like two ITM Forma SL's, One Deda Deep Newton, and an ITM PRIMA 199... so, except for the deep dedas which aren't the right diameter anyway, no real classic bends (I was easily swayed by marketers back then, but have since found my way again)... Ha... there's even an old Campy Ergobrain computer in there and some awesome perfect condition Chorus 8sp levers (easily converted to 9 or 10sp with a simple rebuild). And one lone carbon 10sp lever... I'm sure I used the left lever to fix some girl's bike up somewhere along the way and never got it back. I've lost a lot of bike stuff that way.

That's awesome, thanks Calnago for looking. Love that era Chorus leavers. Super cool retro looking.

I actually forgot to post this, but last night I read the Colnago CNC Ergo Light stem instructions that the old guy gave me with the stem, they say it's a 25.4mm stem to fit bars up to 25.8mm. Well I used a vernier gauge on the Deda 215 Shallow bars I already have and it showed 25.8mm (even though the bars have 26.0 on them) So I had another try at fitting it to the stem and wa la. It's a perfect tight fit so it will work. I'd prefer ITM bars but the 215's will have to do for now. Only problem is I was going to use this tape but only have one of them and don't really want to put it on the Deda's to later find an ITM bar and have to remove it.

So then I go to put the stem on the steerer with a shim and it doesn't fit!!! I need the Colnago specific eccentric shim that came with the stem when it was new, have no idea where I can source one of these.

Good idea Danza, I have some Meguires clay bar at home I can try. Never thought of that.

What a find and a great colour way too.

I've got a Master Olympic and a Dream and would love to add a C40 to the collection.

Nice... it's going to clean up VERY nice. Once again... such a great find, and a great story. Do get a picture of the old man if you can, holding one of his catalogs, and post it if he'll allow it. I bet he'd love to read this thread as well.

Thanks Calnago, I know, I was surprised at how well it cleaned up and how wet glossy it looks. Incredible. I told him when I finish building it I will ride it to his place and will try and get a photo then. I'll post this later but he gave me the FIRST edition of the Colnago issued 'Master Mag' from 1999. Might get him to hold that if he will allow a photo.
