How did I do?

I paid $2000 for these two bikes. I'm wondering if that was fair, or if I got duped. I know the Ferrari is a fake, but that's why it was so cheap. It still weighs 16lbs though, which is light, and expensive in newer bikes. Pretty sure it's a real C40 frame though, it's just a paint job.

I'd say the first one is vintage, 90's anyway. No dents and dings, you're good, maybe swap the campy from the other bike to it....

I dunno. Ferrari has certainly become a shameless brand-***** over the last 20 years or so; I wouldn't be at all surprised if your bike was a legit (but completely meaningless) cross-licensing. So go get some Ferrari sunglasses, cologne, shoes, tote bags and skin-care products and go ride the hell out of those sweet bikes.

Well based on the pics of the first bike looks authentic and likely worth worth a little better than half of what you paid very nice bike bike. The question mark is the second bike the Ferrari they never built bikes but have marketed one under there brand that ranged from mid level to very high end Italian. To give a fair assesment we really need to see some good pics of the second bike. While you may have overpaid a little I doubt you where dupted.

I think you did well, but that red wheelset on the first bike should be promptly taken off and tossed... It's like the cheapest, heaviest generic wheelset you can buy and does NOT belong on that beautiful Colnago.

Send an email to info@colnago.com about that ferrari bike, it looks like a C40 frame set to me. The serial number should be on the front derailleur tab.

I'd say you did we'll for 2 grand, especially if they are your size.
