Colnago Mexico Oro Rare Road Bike from the 1970s Released in 1972 to celebrate Eddy Merckx's world hour record which had been set in Mexico City, the Colnago Mexico was basically a development of the older Colnago Super: same geometry but thinned Columbus SL tubes. Colnago manufactured two different versions of the Mexico before launching the Nuovo Mexico in 1982.
This Colnago Mexico dates back to approximately 1978 and is a second generation model, with rear brake cable guides brazed on the top-tube and short rear dropouts.
The Mexico has always been beloved for its frame geometry, as this model in great condition shows. But what makes it even more desirable is the gold plating which was applied to the Columbus fork, chain stays and head tube lugs: Simply rarer, more captivating and a great contrast to the black paint.
Being a late 1970s model, this Colnago Mexico has been equipped just with high-end parts from the correct period, such as a complete Campagnolo (Super) Record groupset - just the headset and bottom bracket are even higher quality! Many of the parts are pantographed and milled.
The 28-spoke wheelset is also a great addition to this marvellous machine. Altogether it weighs in at just 8.2 kilograms!
Whether for to enrich a collection or to take part in cycling events, a Colnago Mexico of which everybody has always dreamed!»See Details
