I agree, it seems rather odd to me too. Well, not odd really, but suspect. Though the photos are of little use (like showing clovers on the fork crown etc.), it looks nothing like ~any~ 70s Colnago I ever saw. Especially, the lugs, braze-on bits, and general shape of the fork crown in the one close up of the head tube area don't look right to me. Also, I would like to know if anyone has seen a "Super Colnago" from that or any other era, or with a 531 sticker. ;-) Buyer beware on this one...
