Hi CycleryNorth81, strangely enough I've had a few Pinarello Asolo's over the years and 2 of them had similar cracks in the RH rear dropout as the Colnago in the clip. I cleaned the cracked area up...

It's a real beauty. I've always admired the carbon ALAN's. They seem to clean-up so well with minimal work - Yours looks new.

Good work Ben. I know nothing about the Trek Navigator 300 but it's a Trek so thats good. I just thought I'd encourage your more informed quest for a really nice and affordable bike.

Oh, yeah, it's nice. you did a great clean-up job. Replacing the bottle cage may cover-up the damaged decal but this is not a very good idea - hate those clamped-on bottle cages.

Yes - it looks British.

Is it worth buying and restoring? YES!! I wish I found it and it's a good frame size too. I'd guess at early to mid 70's too?

Blowing up the photo does uncover the 'Saronni' seat stay plugs. I can't make out the front fork crown but it should be an 'S'. 2 top tube cable guides does help. I'd say it is a real Saronni by...

A 1982 Colnago Mexico that has been re-painted. The components are pretty much as Saronni would have used on his 'Campagnolo 50th anniversary' bike.

You don't muck around Hubertus, that's a really clean Colnago you now own. The race number boss under the top tube is a nice little bonus.
