Hi All,

This is my first build thread and wanted to share it with you all. I have wanted a Colnago C40 since the mid 90's. This recently popped up on eBay and just happened to be my size, so I had to have it!

Looking forward to seeing this one too. I've got a 2001 B-Stay C40 currently in at Cromaworks of Field Cycles fame getting a new coat of paint. I'm going for a mixture old and new parts. Latest campagnolo chorus group but old finishing kit.

Congratulations on getting the C40. Has the drive side chain stay been resprayed as that's usually not all black?

Thanks Tids,

Definitely not resprayed black. Doesn't show up in these shots, but the drive side chain stay is naked carbon.

I'll post up a pic of it when I can.

(my winter bike is a Colnago Dream Aluminum from the late 90s and I may also upgrade it with new components)

Could you already post which parts do you intend to install?
