Hi, has anyone ever seen a Colnago Master competition without crimped tubing?

There's one for sale somewhere else and i've never come across one before

Campagnolo; because it's a bicycle, not a fishing rod.

Back 'in the day', we rode Colnago. We were on them until 1989.

In 1982, Sarroni won World Championship on a version of the Super with a shaped tubeset. Accordingly, the following year, all our bikes were shaped-tube frames. I chose the 'Nuevo Mexico', which was really a TT frame, but I was light enough to use it for road (early WW). 1983, a new frame was also introduced, called the 'Master'. It used a Gilco tubeset with cool, shaped variants on the three main tubes. It had cool, chrome lugs, too. When the shipment finally arrived, I remember thinking that they were way more cool than the Nuevo Mexico frames (I seem to recall that they had contrasting stripes, too, but I'm not sure about that).

Check this out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colnago

Find out what year that frame is.
