    2001 C40 paint scheme help

    I purchased a 2001 Colnago C40 and was wondering if someone could help me identify the ID (numbering/lettering) of the paint scheme. Any help or ideas is appreciated!

    Thank you!

    That's the bike I wanted!! Not too many Colnagos that size on Ebay (or elsewhere). Great price too!

    Thanks everyone.

    Mark --- I agree --- I've been looking for one year+ for a 65cm C40. A real rarity.

    My wife has that exact bike (not in 65 cm though). We bought C-40's in Italy on our honeymoon in 2000. The 2001 model was the first to have a B-Stay. Ordered them custom made -- whatever that means. I got the 00F. I wish I'd got the GEO instead. At any rate, they are great bikes and we still ride them a lot.

    The Geo is probably my favorite C40 paint scheme. At 65cm (and 12 years later) beggars can't be choosers. Got the bike together Thursday --- it is amazing. Well beyond my abilities but oh so fun to ride. Highly highly recommend.
