    Need help ID'ing this Colnago

    Did about $750 of work for a pawn shop in Miami and the owner gave me this bike as payment. Took it my local bike store, they're not very knowledgeable about anything outside of Trek, Specialized, etc..

    Any ideas?

    Need help ID'ing this Colnago-photo.jpg

    Thanks,

    does it say "Ottanta" on the top tube? If so you are a lucky guy. otherwise it looks like a limited edition version of my Arte C59, in whatever case you're looking at a bike worth a lot more than $750

    It is an Ottanta and new there were only 80 of them with special Campagnolo Bora wheels and super record EPS, believe retail was around $20k

    Entry level frame, with cheap plastic components. Not surprised your Trek/Spez. store did not know much about it as it doesn't have the good stuff on it such as 105 or Force etc. and Bontrager wheels.

    ^^ THIS, I thought it was too obvious to call BS. I don't think it qualifies as trolling but it is pretty funny.
