Here we offer you a Colnago Master from the year 1986. It really is great to find such an early exemplar in the great condition that this one is in. The very first generation of the Colnago Master was released in 1984, the same year in which Giuseppe Saronni won the Giro d'Italia - riding a Colnago Master, of course.
The Master was meant to be an improvement of the Mexico which had been Colnago's top model before. It had completely different lugs and a drastically changed tubing.
Any cyclist out there dreamed to own a Master, just like avid collectors nowadays have one in their collection. The frame truly is an "evergreen". The tubing - "Columbus Gilco Design - Profilo S4" - has profiled sections and was specifically designed by Gilberto Colombo to improve the stiffness and to better withstand mechanical strain.
The master had a huge impact on the cycling scene and became the most winning rod bike model in the following years.
A top notch frame like this deserves only top notch parts. In this case it is Campagnolo's best groupset. In the sum it perfects the bike to a union of the best of the Italian cycling world. The C-Record groupset is often is quoted to be the most beautiful one Campagnolo ever made. Our groupset includes the iconic Delta brakes and ours even have a neatly pantographed cover plate.
Also special is the straight Colnago precisa fork which was a real innovation in 1987. Our Master is certainly fit for classic cycling events like L'Eroica but also for weekend rides and that place at your wall which needs some decoration with a piece of art.
A superbe piece of 1980s road racing.
