One of the most iconic bikes which left the famous factory in Cavenago (Milan, Italy), the first Colnago Mexico was produced to celebrate Eddy Merckx' 1972 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 was the Colnago Nuovo Mexico first released in 1982 and immediately brought to victory by Giuseppe Saronni in the 1982 World Championships. It was built with profiled Columbus SL tubes which had distinctive crimps at the top and down tube.
This particular Colnago Nuovo Mexico has been refurbished in a lovely tricolore paintjob and a "retinato" on the top and down tube. On these tubes you can also observe the destinctive gentle crimpes, a detail common to all bikes of Nuovo Mexico series.
Such a top class bicycle deserves a top class groupset and you cannot get any higher than this. The bikes is fully equipped with a Campagnolo 50th Anniversary groupset – Serial Number 6557. 3ttt stems and bars, Mavic rims and, San Marco Rolls saddle and NOS Regina Extra freehweel complete this superb setup: just the best of everything.
Fully inspected in our workshop. Ready to ride.
A bicycle for true connoisseurs and collectors.
