COLNAGO Master Arabesque, Campagnolo 50th Ann, 57cm (1985) – SOLD

Ernesto Colnago was born on February 9, 1932 in Cambiago, near Milan, Italy. At age 13 he entered in world of two wheels and immediately he fall in love with bikes and cyclingIn 1952 he founded Colnago and started to work as mechanic for several professional teams. His first big success as a frame builder dates back in 1960 when Luigi  Arienti won gold medal at the Rome Olympic games. Colnago’s bikes still have a domination of the world’s cycling sports because Ernesto was always an innovator and pioneer of new technologies which supposedly provide more efficency or comfort.

In response to criticism that Colnago frames were not stiff enough, Ernesto experimented with various crimped-tube frames. In 1982 he introduced their top model ”Nuovo Mexico”, 2 years later he released Colnago Master and Master Arabesque with Columbus S4 tubing.

Since Colnago came up with the beautifully ornamental Arabesque lugs, bicycle lovers all over the world tried to get hold of a one of the rare bikes with these iconic pieces. Unfortunately the number of frames with Arabesque lugs is limited and the number of collectors is high enough to have quick and totally absorbed each piece that has ever entered the market. Master Arabesque has been built for a short time and in small numbers.

Proudly presenting another beautiful masterpiece by great Ernesto – Colnago Master Arabesque Tricolore. This jewel dates back to 1985, made of legendary Arabesque lugs and crimped Columbus Gilco S4 tubing. By no surprise, built with highly collectible Campagnolo 50th Anniversary groupset (serial no. 13071), Cinelli Colnago stem and handlebar, San Marco Rolls saddle, Mavic rims. The trandescent beautythis steel icon remains unrivalled.

A real jewel. For all Colnago enthusiasts. L’Eroica ready.
