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 which was first released in 1982 and immediately ridden to victory by Giuseppe Saronni in the 1982 World Championships. It was built with profiled Columbus SL tubes with distinctive crimps on top and down tube.
This Colnago Nuovo Mexico has been partly refurbished and it sports an interesting dark blue paintjob with just a hint of metallic spakle in it.
Regarding the components, this Colnago Nuovo Mexico is quipped with a full Campagnolo Super Record groupset, Cinelli cockpit and a pair of original and absolutely high-end Vittoria tires.
Completely checked in our workshop, this bike is ready to ride straight away.
A vintage bicycle with racing pedigree and heritage. Suitable for Eroica events worldwide.
