Manufactured to celebrate 1972 Eddy Merckx world hour record, the Colnago Mexico is one of the most iconic bikes which left the legendary factory in Cavenago (Milan, Italy). The Colnago Mexico was slightly different from the Colnago Super - built with a slightly different, lighter Columbus KL tubing and un-crimped chain stays - but it shared the aggressive racing geometry: short, agile and pretty stiff.
This Colnago Mexico frame from the 1970s still has its original paintjob which is in pretty good condition.
What else could make a frame like this more perfect? A high class groupset, of course. In our case it is the classic Campagnolo Nuovo Record one. A groupset which was so good that is was produced for almost two decades.
