Here we offer you a Colnago Master from the year 1985. It really is great to find such an early exemplar in good condition.
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 legendary Super Record. It completes the bike to a union of the best of the Italian cycling world. And it also marks a change in generations. At the same year, the new C-Record groupset was really accepted to be the worthy successor of the Super Record.
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.
