1970’s Colnago Mexico Frameset in Saronni Red
Iconic Colnago Mexico frameset in Saronni Red. This is a Mexico with the lighter tubing as opposed to a re-badged Super which many I see are selling as Mexicos. You can spot the non genuine Mexicos from the weight but visually the NDS rear stay on a genuine ’78 Mexico does NOT have a crimp as is the case of course with this one.
Please study the photos to show better the condition. It has stood the test of time well, nearly 40 years! The chrome is good with only some minimal pitting.
Paint is overall good, evidence of a few touch ups and some heat shrinkage to the paint on the top tube. I have endeavoured to best show it from all sides in the pictures.
A truly legendary frame that are now becoming harder and harder to find, well genuine ones anyway.
I removed the headset shortly after taking the photos so it is NOT included.
Centre to Centre frame measurements as follows
Top Tube 58.5cm
Seat Tube 60cm
