Welcome to the forums. That is a Colnago Super from about 1981 or 1982. Excellent condition, great color, and clean, too. Probably worth around $1,200 or more.

I am thinking a bit earlier, no COLNAGO stamping on the chainstays, top of the bottom bracket cable guides, nut fixing of the brakes.
appears as in “little use” shape. Has the text on the top of the seat stays... some Colnagos don’t follow convention.
Size is larger and will hold it back some.
this is a bike where tubulars are OK, even more desireable.

Older than 83 (sloped fork crown) or 81 (spooled chain bridge). It looks like a repaint. Looks to good for its age.

I thought so too until I saw the World Championship band on the seat tube with the Record Ora Mexico 1972 inscription. Almost every replacement/restoration decal set I've ever seen omits that detail.

It just looks like it was hardly used and will make someone it fits very happy. Because of condition, it's worth upwards of $1000, but exactly where is determined by the tall guy looking for it

Judging by the chrome chainstay decal, it's an 80 or 81. They only used that feature a couple years.
