Restoration project: 1971 Colnago Super

 This 59 cm relic has been hanging above my bench for about 16 years. I finally got it repainted and pooked through all of my parts to return it to as close as original as I could. Here is the result of my labors. I have added incentive to build it up as I have a construction project at my house that is going over budget-thank you planning dept. of the city of Santa Cruz now I'll be bringing it to the San Fransisco bike swap along with some other choice bikes and parts to sell. If you are in the area come check out the booth on Saturday. This bike looks much better in person than in these photos-it rides noiselessly and goes dead straight with no hands. I'm glad it is too big for me so I won't want to keep it.
