COLNAGO Super Saronni Campagnolo Super Record, 50cm (early 1980s) – 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 cycling. In 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.

Colnago Super is for sure one of the most succesful racing bikes in history. It was released in 1968, produced for more than 20 years, was Colnago’s top model from late 1960 till early 1980s and became a legend with Eddy Merckx ridding for Molteni Team. The Super was designed for professionals riders and thanks to Columbus SL tubing it was a synonym for stiffness and lightnes.

Happy to offer one of the most iconic bikes by great Ernesto, the COLNAGO Super which dates back to early 1980s. The frame is made of superb Columbus SL tubing, shining in amazing Saronni red paintjob, completelly equiped with top of the line Campagnolo Super Record groupset (Colnago pantograph chainring, seatpost), Ambrosio Colnago wheels, 3ttt stem and handlebar, Regina Oro freewheel and San Marco Concor saddle. The Saronni’s just get better with age, same as fine wine…
