COLNAGO Master, First Generation
This first generation Colnago Master from 1985 is in exceptional condition - all the more remarkable because these guys do not age well (some better than others). I bought this frame from the original owner who rode it very little. This frame is in its clean original condition. It measures 53cm seat tube (center to center), 54cm top tube, 12cm headtube and 130mm rear spacing.
The other cool thing about this frame is the color. Most of these early Masters were Saronni red, some were pearl white, some were dark blue, and only a very limited number were pearl celeste. It is difficult to photograph, but the color is a brilliant pearl, light blue. Very rare and attractive.
There are only 4 issues that holds this frame back from (near) perfection: there is this little mark next to the shift lever boss, there is another touched up 1 cm scratch on the drive side seat stay (see next photo), the chain stay decals are a bit rough and finally, the chrome has some micro spots that could be polished up.
Even on the cleanest Masters, these cable guides attract rust or get a little scraped. A miracle here.
