A very rare and authentic Italian Colnago vintage steel mountain bike made in the late eighties or early nineties. Columbus tubing in a octagonal shape for extra strength make up this Colnago Master frame. Excellent condition with no dents or major scratches. All paint and decals are original. Not a restoration or re-paint job. One decal on the seat tube is a little frayed on the edges, but all letters are intact. Frame has been treated with Frame-Saver. Includes vintage Mavic head set, 27.0 size seat post, seat post binder, and a new bottom bracket. Seat tube is 52 cm measured from center of BB to top of top tube. Seat tube is 56cm, measured from center of BB to top of seat post tube. Top tube length is 58cm measured center to center. Head tube is 18.5 cm. This posting is for the frame only. If you are looking for vintage mountain bike parts that I once installed on this bike, we can discuss some options if you are the successful bidder. There are some pictures of the bike completed, but this posting is for the FRAME ONLY.
At $3,500 or offer, the price is more palatable than Giuseppe Saronni’s $20k Arabesque…
COLNAGO MASTER KRONO 1986
Campagnolo Super Record gruppo
Stunning, rare and much sought after, this Colnago Master Krono time trial bicycle is a true gem. Colnago Master Krono Columbus Gilco complete bicycle with a shaped seat tube and a last generation Campagnolo Super Record.
The front hub is a very rare super record hub with an Ernesto Colnago signature logo pantographed on hub body. The gear shifters are pantographed with the Colnago “C” and “Ace of Clubs” symbol. This particular bicycle belonged to amateur cyclist Martinez, hence the quill stem with a “Martin” pantograph.
Martinez raced for the Verdellese team, and the paint job was made-to-order to reflect the team name (verde means green in Italian). The rear wheel is a carbon disc wheel painted with a red and green fishnet design and black Colnago logo present on both sides. The rear tubular tire is a “Colnago Servizio Corse” and the front tubular is a “Gomme Italia Servizio Corse”. The front wheel is a 26 and the rear is 28.
The bike comes in the original condition. The frame and the disc wheel show sign of usage. The toe straps are NOS Silva. The paint and chrome are original, there are a few scratches due to usage and storage, please see detailed photos below for further details.
Tubulars might have to be changed to ensure a safe usage of the bike.
