Thats not a Colnago. The frame in the photos was made by Tecnotrat. They made frames with the Saronni name in the mid-eighties, before changing to the De Bernardi name. I would expect a Colnago-built Saronni to look like a Colnago- the Tecnotrats had a distinctive cast seat lug, with fastback seatstays. DB
