Here we offer you a Colnago Master 1st Generation from the 1980s. It is always pleasing to find such an early exemplar in still good condition
The very first generation of the Colnago Master was released in 1984, the same year in which Giuseppe Saronni won the Giro d'Italia - riding a Colnago Master, of course.
The Master was meant to be an improvement of the Mexico which had been Colnago's top model before. It had completely different lugs and a drastically changed tubing.
Any cyclist out there dreamed to own a Master, just like avid collectors nowadays have one in their collection.
The frame truly is an "evergreen". The tubing - "Columbus Gilco Design - Profilo S4" - has profiled sections and was specifically designed by Gilberto Colombo to improve the stiffness and to better withstand mechanical strain.
The master had a huge impact on the cycling scene and became the most winning rod bike model in the following years.
A top notch frame like this deserves only top notch parts. In this case it is Campagnolo's best groupset. In the sum it perfects the bike to a union of the best of the Italian cycling world. The Super Record groupset was the epitome of professional cycling componentry which helped riders to win races for the span of 15 years.
Our groupset includes a neatly pantographed chainring and stem.
This Master is certainly fit for classic cycling events like L'Eroica, especially since it is equipped with clincher rims and wider clincher tires. It also includes a set of finest Campagnolo Superleggeri Pedals!
A superbe piece of 1980s road racing.
