Colnago Master Arabesque 50th Anniversary Superb Bike 1980s
When it comes to classic bicycles, a Colnago Arabesque is undoubtedly a must have for any collector. Very hard to find, the original Arabesque bikes might be the most well-finished bicycle that Colnago has ever manufactured.
It was first produced around 1984 to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the company: Ernesto Colnago wanted to create a bicycle which would be a milestone, both for himself and for the bicycle industry.
By looking at the lugs, it is simple to understand where the name "Arabesque" comes from. Those "arabesque shape" lugs were made by Rauler and actually remind of Gloria Garibaldina bikes, an Italian company Ernesto Colnago worked for as a teenager.
As for the tubing, the Arabesque was built in different versions both with Columbus SL tubes and specially profiled Colnago tubes (the later ones practically Columbus Gilco of the Master and Esamexico).
The frames became so popular and legendary that for 2016, Colnago started to produce a number of reproductions from a stash of leftover lugs. But unfortunately those still just stay reproductions.
This Colnago Master Arabesque is an original breathtaking beauty from 1980s. The frame has been refurbishe in a shade of red which is usually called Saronni after the famous Colnago del Tongo rider.
The frame of this Arabesque was built using a special tubing which was developed by Gilberto Colombo for Colnago.
But what makes this Colnago even more unique and turns it into a 1980s superbike is the Campagnolo 50th Anniversary groupset, this holy grail of all vintage parts.
This rare bike truly is the crème de la crème of what was available in 1980s. If you were after your perfect dream bike, don't look any further.
|The bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork has been refurbished by a previous owner. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop! All parts were disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled again. The frame was checked for structural integrity and all wearing parts were replaced with new ones. You can expect the bicycle in fantastic riding condition and ready to go for your vintage bike ride.|
