One of the most iconic bikes which left the famous factory in Cavenago (Milan, Italy), the Colnago Mexico was produced to celebrate the 1972 Eddy Merckx world hour record. The Colnago Mexico was slightly different from the Colnago Super - built with even thinner Columbus tubes - but shared with that glorious bike the aggressive racing geometry: short, light and very stiff! The next step in its evolution became the Colnago Nuovo Mexico first released in 1982 and continued in the year 1983 with minor differences. It was built with profiled Columbus SL tubes which had distinctive crimps on the sides of the top and down tube. In the following years the evolution went even further and the downtube got two extra crimps.
Our Colnago Mexico is one the post 1983 versions which have been built for a very short time. The superb frame got a new paintjob in vibrant candy red. A highly collectible Campagnolo 50th anniversary groupset, makes this bike a true gem of classic mid 1980s cycling.
A bike like that is mouthwatering
