Update, 2 August 2015:
The bike is still available, now for $700. Note that it’s also being advertised as a Guiseppi Saronni model, which we believe is mistaken.

Looks like a ‘nago México if we’re not mistaken.

This bike rides amazing and is very much ready to ride right out of the box. I would hate to think this bike becomes a wall queen on display as this bike rides amazingly nice!
many bike sellers try to exude as much profit as possible out of these beautiful vintage bikes.
So they strip the bike of all the parts and sell the frame separate. And then continue and part out the whole bike.
I personally feel this is a shame and kind of silly as the buyer will have to try and find and buy all those same part to build it back up.
This is all original as when bought new.
Bike has scratches and flaws in the pain and decals
and scratches in paint in various places and nicks. But as the photos show,she still looks beautiful! Or you could do restore and decals and make her new again!

And not just any Colnago:
In the words of Ernesto Colnago, “We built this golden bike for the Pope in 1979. It was a special day when we went to the Vatican to present it to him. Very emotional for me. I went with my entire family; my brother Paolo and his son Alessandro. We heard that the Pope liked to ride a bike and that he did a ride of 38km two times a week when he was in Krakow and he continued to ride when he was in Castel Gondolfo (the Pope’s summer residence outside of Rome).
