Marc B’s pair of Colnagos

18 Dec

Marc dropped by with a couple of Colnago’s that had encountered a hard time during re-refurbishment. The Mexico had lost a cable guide. No problem there. I dug around in my stash and found one that matched. Easy fix

The Master. Well it had had the rear end crushed.

This was going to be somewhat of a bigger job. Marc wanted to save as much as he could from the original. That amounted to the dropouts and the brake bridge.

The rear end of this Master is socketed at both ends of every tube so that meant that tubing had to be the same as original. I think I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
