FS: NOS 56cm Colnago SLX Conic frame and fork
This is one of those rare opportunities to own a legendary hand-made Italian
steel Colnago road frame that has never even been built up! These Colnago
SLX Spiral Conics are longer being made, and Colnago has even recently
announced they will no longer be making any all-steel frames.
These Colnago SLX Spiral Conic's are difficult to find even in used
condition. This one is an even rarer find because it is new old stock, never
ridden or even built up, especially in this popular size. With beautiful
spring weather and tax refunds just around the corner, it is time to get
that special frame you have always wanted.
This beautiful frame measures 56cm c-t on the seat tube with a 55cm top
tube. This Colnago Super frame has a hot pink to mint green fade paint
scheme with a threaded chromed fork, head tube lugs, and right chain stay.
It is made in Italy of Columbus made SLX Spiral Conic tubing steel
especially for Colnago. The specially made down tube is tapered specifically
for this model Colnago. It is wider at the bottom for stiffness, much like
the Serotta Colorado tubing concept. This Colnago has investment cast fork,
dropouts and bottom bracket shell and Campagnolo Campy rear dropouts.
The frame has the Colnago clover pantographed into the top of the seat
stays, top sides of the bottom bracket shell, bottom chromed head tube lug,
and brake bridge stay. The Colnago clover is cut out of the bottom of the
bottom bracket shell and the word COLNAGO is engraved into the bottom of the
shell. The fork has the word COLNAGO and the Colnago clover engraved in the
top of the fork crown and has Colnago engraved front dropouts. The chrome on
the right chain stay, head tube lugs, and fork is shiny and bright. The
frame has been completely treated inside the tubes with Boeshield T-9 rust
The rear spacing is 130mm, head tube length 132mm, and the fork steerer is
threaded and uncut (needs to be cut down when the frame is built-up). This
frame has adjustable rear horizontal Campagnolo dropouts (screws not
included), braze-on front derailleur tab and down tube shifter bosses,
derailleur cable guides under the bottom bracket shell, one set of water
bottle bosses, rear brake cable routed inside the top tube, and brazed-on
down tube shifter bosses.
There are no dings or dents.this bike is in wonderful condition. There is a
very small paint blemish on the top of the top tube by the rear entry hole
for the rear brake cable housing (but a paint blemish is not rare with a
hand-painted Italian frame) but you have to look for it to see it. This
frame will turn heads wherever you go.it is stunningly beautiful! It also
will provide you with a wonderful ride that you can only experience on a
Colnago. Once you build this frame up and ride it, you will understand why
Colnago has such a fiercely loyal following.
$600 professionally packed, insured, and shipped via UPS Ground.
Lots of pictures available for the asking.
