I used to live up the street from one of the nicer Colnago dealers in So. Calif, King Cycle in San Pedro. They had all sorts of nice stuff in there including approx. 50 frames at all times. Good stuff. As I recall, there was a super nice older rig in the shop that was shod with wooden rims. Can't remember much more than this but some day a Colnago I will own.

very pretty indeedSpirito

i used to ride a steel frame, with 36 hole wolber rims and shimano 7-speed index shifters. the frame is a technotrat, cromoly made with columbus tubing. the bike above is even older than mine, looking at the brake hoods etc.
i'm currently riding a carbon with alu lugs, (not the Look Kg series anyway) but riding with the old chrome-plated fork (still with the columbus decal) on my current bike. i love the cool looking chrome fork. the old frame is still around though, but i've strip off most of the parts. i still love the old frame, plan to have it repainted and properly restored when i have the cash. btw dave, we share the same frame size..
