Eddy Merckx, Giuseppe Saronni, Johann Museeuw – all these legendary cyclists won on a Colnago, one of the world’s most famous bicycle manufacturers! The company has always had a presence in the professional cycling peleton, including today’s Europcar Pro Cycling Team.
Now you can own a 56 cm early-mid 1980s COLNAGO Nuovo Mexico “Profil” bicycle in the famous Saronni red, celebrating the colors the Italian rode to World Championship and multiple Giro d’Italia victories. Although the bike has normal nicks and scratches, you will rarely find a 30-year-old bicycle of this quality in such great condition – in its ORIGINAL PAINT and decals! The design of the revolutionary Profil frame is distinguished by its crimped top tube and down tube, which was meant to provide lateral stiffness. Colnago name and Ace of Clubs logo is stamped/ painted on various locations (see photos).
The bike is outfitted in the classic CAMPAGNOLO Super Record component gruppo, including the brakes and drilled levers, crankset, front & rear derailleurs, headset, hubs and seatpost. There are also many (noted) New Old Stock parts added, among these other highlighted parts: rare 3T (ttt) Ernesto Colnago autographed stem, 3t handlebars with NOS Benotto cellotape and Colnago chrome bar plugs, NOS Campagnolo “shield” gum brake hoods, NOS Everest 6-speed freewheel and NOS Everest Speciale Corsa black chain. The wheelset is built up from the Super Record hubs, Mavic MA40 rims and NEW Vittoria Zaffiro Pro II 700 x 23mm tires.
PLEASE NOTE: I built up this bike myself and know the value and desirability of the parts collected to assemble this classic machine. You could resell the parts alone and nearly make up the starting price I’ve put on this auction, but I wanted to “get the ball rolling” at a reasonable level.
I will be listing more vintage bicycles in the next few weeks. Please check out my other listings!

Colnago Ernesto & C. S.r.l. or Colnago is a manufacturer of high-end road-racing bicycles founded by Ernesto Colnago in 1954 near Milano in Cambiago, Italy. Instead of following his family’s farming business, Ernesto Colnago chose to work in the cycle trade, apprenticing first with Gloria Bicycles at 13, subsequently taking up road racing. After a bad crash ended his racing career, he began subcontracting for Gloria, opened his own shop (1954) and built his first frames the same year. Much in demand as a racing mechanic, he was second mechanic on the Nivea team Giro d’Italia under Faliero Masi in 1955, eventually being employed as head mechanic for the Molteni team of Belgian cycling legend Eddy Merckx.[1]

The company first became known for high quality steel framed bicycles, and later as one of the more creative cycling manufacturers responsible for innovations in design and experimentation with new and diverse materials including carbon fiber, now a mainstay of modern bicycle construction.
This is a slightly used Gios Torino Aerodynamic frame set in very good condition. No dents, gouges or accident. Some minor chips, scratches, but almost all have been touched up. The only issue is the Aero frameset sticker is damaged (see last pic).
