This is my road bike which my wife calls "Blue Lightning". I found this very clean late 70s Colnago Mexico last year and outfitted it with 2007 Campagnolo Chorus grouppo. Used for fast, club rides to centuries. Hoping to do some brevets in the near future. I've never seen another Colnago with fender eyelets so this could have been designed as a randonneur bike? It is a really smooth, predictable ride.

I've wanted a Colnago since high school and finally got it. This bike is my dream bike.
