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 is said to be built with profiled Columbus KL lightweight tubes and it features the distinctive crimps on top and down tube.
This Nuovo Mexico is a stunning piece. It still sports the original paintjob in the iconic "Saronni red". It is nicely preserved and so are the parts. Nothing less than the best has been chosen - Campagnolo Super Record gruppo.
A vintage bicycle with racing pedigree and heritage, suitable for classic cycling events.
