Vintage & original 1983 Colnago Super – Saronni road bike, completed with a Campagnolo
Nuovo Record/Super Record groupset, lightweight Concor saddle, 32 hole Mavic rims, paint
& Colnago decals are all original.
Few bicycles have influenced the cycling scene as much as the Colnago Super. At a time when
racing bicycles were averagely heavy, with long wheelbases and flat angles, Ernesto Colnago
released a frameset which would become a legend in cycling history and one of the top models
of his 1970s and 1980s catalogues – the Colnago Super.
Made of Columbus SL steel tubes, with a shorter, stiffer and lighter frame. Frame was designed
for high-performance since its launch, unaccountable amounts oif racing bicycles have been built
with a similar geometry inspired by the Super.
This particular edition of the Colango Super is named after one of the Legends in Road Cycling
Giuseppe Saronni who became World Champion in 1982 on a Colango Super and dominated
the Racing Scene in early 80ies.
The bike has seen a few races, it has some patina that has been retouched but has no technical damage
like cracks or dents. Front and rear derailleurs are Campagnolo Nuovo Record and the rest of the group-
set is Campagnolo Super Record. The skin rubber brake hoods are re-makes & in top condition, brake &
shifter cables are also new. Saddle is an original Selle San Marco Concor in Italian leather, chosen to suit
the age and style of this bicycle. Headset is a Stronglight and the bar & stem are 3TTT.
Finished in elegant red with white and black decals, the paint is still in good condition with only
few bigger scratches on the top tube and chips. Some light scratches of the overall the frame.
All chrome is bright and intact. Please get in touch if you need more pictures!
Nice wheelset as well, featuring a pair of low-flange Campagnolo Chorus hubs laced to dark
anodized Mavic GP4 tubular rims, 36 front / 36 rear with rare Gommitalia Champion tubulars.
It’s possible to exchange the wheels for a similar set of clincher rims if you prefer, just
let us know and we can organise something for you.
All in all, a top quality, professional grade racing bike with no dents, cracks, rust or
any other technical problems. This bike meets the entry requirements for any L’Eroica-style event.
