Powdercoat it red cause I always wanted a red bike:

Build it into a commuter and ride it to work:

See if I can wear out my original speedplays:

What model/year is that Colnago? Looks an awful lot like my '81 Super. Great bike!

is early eighties. The bike was abandoned at a friends apartment building. It was pretty rough. My friend wanted the running gear (Shimano 105). The fork had a small bend in it. I had it all straightened and aligned, stripped, powder coated, and built up with extra parts I could scavange. I'm extremely pleased with how well it rides.
It had a barely legible Columbus sticker if that is any clue. I'm into it for about $500.00.
