The Colnago Master model line is undoubtedly an evergreen of cycling history. First released in 1983, five different versions of the Colnago Master were manufactured until 1998 ( the Master 1983, Master Più 1988, Master Olympic 1991, Master Light 1994 and Master X-Light 1998).
Thanks to this superb frame, the Italian brand achieved a peak of steel frame design, but on the other hand, the Master series also represents the start of the decline of the steel era.
Released in 1991, the Master Olympic shares with its predecessors the famous crimped tubing, originally designed by Gilberto Colombo to make the frame stiffer and more reactive. On the Olympic, these tubes are used in a slightly oversized dimension to give some extra stiffness. The Olympic distinguished itself for very eye-catching paint schemes, especially the famous Art Decor pattern.
This model is a Colnago Master Olympic in just this original paint scheme, constructed with classic Profilo S4 tubes.
