I'm leaning more towards this being a fake. (No Clover Cutouts, Average paint job, size stamped on bb, etc...) i have been told that there is a chance that it is legit and that colnago have at one stage used gipiemme dropouts, but i dont have my hopes up.

feel free to pass judgement on whether the bike is a fake or not, i'm not really fussed if it is or not because it's an awesome bike to ride

You have a nice bike indeed!

You have a nice bike indeed! But I’m sure that it’s a fake. Colnago always used Campagnolo or “Colnago?? dropouts, they also added the logo on the seat stays and they had their own lugs. I have two Colnagos (1983+93) and they both have all this specifications (you can check the pictures on this site if you want). They used to be proud to produce in Italy only. It’s no problem at all to get some Colnago decals. So I guess it’s an Asian or Italian bike but no Colnago for sure. But after all, who cares? I like it, original or not!

Who cares,fake or not. You

Who cares,fake or not. You got a hot bike,love what u got.

Oops, that explains it!

I just noticed you're from Australia. Well, there you go. The far-east market! Read my post below...

Probably not a fake...

My Colnago has the frame size stamped on the bb shell, although the lug work looks different. I'm willing to bet that's a Japanese-built frame since I have a couple of bikes with the bb shell that looks exactly like yours. My Bianchi Axis is an example. It could have been built for Colnago, even with Columbus tubing - they could have outsourced the frame to meet demand or something like that (I've heard of that being done before). Nothing wrong with that, of course. It also could be for the far-east market. Check the width of the bb shell, too.


It's a nice bike and if it rides good.. just love it ! Hell, I'd settle for a fake.
