Anyone know what model Colnago/Campy groupset this is and/or any idea as to it's worth? I've looked on e-Bay for similar models and haven't found any with the same sticker design/groupset, etc. Thanks for any help you can provide.

hmm. mid to late 70's i'd guess, maybe the mexico or super...

gruppo looks old record, maybe 70's nuovo record?

need more & closer pics

not too much on ebay, maybe 4-600?

It's a nice bike....(I've never seen a bad Colnago) a mid to late 80's model, and maybe Campy Victory (or Triomphe?). Its neither Record nor N. R. $600 seems high to me....if they can get that, they should be really happy. I've seen 1983/84 Pinnarelos with better components that a Pinnarelo dealer told me were worth $400.

Here's the details on the bike in case anyone is interested:
The paint is immaculate (supposedly ridden very little and waxed often), my racing year old road bike's paint doesn't look as good. There are Colnago club cutouts in the bb shell, on the head tube lug and on the fork crown painted in white to the contrasting burgandy frame color (the ones on the fork crown have the club with a C around them). Also, the name Colnago is stamped into the dropouts and into the chainstays behind the bb. The gruppo on it is Campy, pretty sure it's Campy Victory/Triomphe, although definitely not Nuovo Record as the previous post suggested. The seatpost, cranks, hubs, rear and front derailleurs are all polished with the campy sheild but no model is listed like on the older nuevo record stuff (also, I do know that it isn't super record stuff). The wheels are Ambrosio sewups with original Vittoria tires. The stem is 3TTT with Ernesto Colnago in script on the side and the club on the front. The pedals are Omegas with Ernesto Colnago in script on the pedal body with the Colnago club and surrounding C (like the fork) on the clips. The straps say "Record" in block letters. The brake levers are aero Campys (supposedly off some Coors Classic racing bike) and the guy I bought it from gave me the non-aero Campy levers, an extra wheelset in Raleigh wheelcovers, a extra Brooks saddle, and an extra pair of Campy pedals with campy clips and straps. Thanks.
what size is ti I might be interested in buying it!nmthe bull

I would guess that it is likely a Colnago. Just my opinion, though.

Hard to tell without a closer look, but from what I can see and from your description, it does sound like a Colnago Super. In fact, I actually test rode an '81 super just this morning. Different components altogether, but the frame sounds very similar. Club cutout on the bottom bracket shell, etc. Very, very nice ride. I hope to bring it home soon!

looks like it's been repainted because the down tube decal letters are not the standard size. plus, if it's a 80's frame, the water bottle on the seat tube has been added. like every else has said, need closer pics.

Note the club cutout on the brake stay.

Take a look at the pic, it kinda looks like the fork is bent back a bit. Maybe an optical illusion but worth checking into before buying
