    hi everyone, I'm after any info on this bike as I have no idea who made it and what it's worth, if anything... It has pista 165 cranks, nitto bars, velocity rims and has a spade cut under the bottom bracket ( not a club) also has a spade inside a (C) on top of forks. Any info would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks

    Mario Confente! He passed away very young so there are very few frames floating around. I believe he built for Masi as well. That bar/stem combo is worth a pretty penny too ;)

    I can't guarantee anything but it seems like Confente. no serial number besides the lone 7 is a little odd. definitely looks well made though.

    So is it worth anything? I don't want to ruin it fitting brakes if it is
  4.  
    please do not put brakes on it! it should definitely remain original! I would recommend a modern steel frame if you want to run a street set up. or a vintage frame that's been drilled already. I've owned (and still own) some drilled vintage steel
  5.  
    I 100% agree with Goose on NOT drilling the frame. It and the components are definitely valuable enough to not molest. Also, as goose mentioned, the stem is worth money by itself, the bars appear to be Nitto B123.

    FYI, just post the URL ending with .jpg. No need for the extra coding fluff. I.e. remove [URL=photo_link_keep this bit[IMG][/URL] An edit with said changes would be most appreciated by many.

    ah it is Colner not Confente

    still a great frame that should not be drilled but it's not a Confente
  7.  
    Colner's were a work around on a UCI rule that allowed a builder to only sponsor one team, its basically a Colnago with different color lipstick!
