Subject: [CR]Paint and artwork for late 1960s Colnago?

Hi all,

A few weeks ago I got some help from the list to ID and date what was claimed to be a 1968 Colnago, with the general consensus being that it did seem to be a Colnago from the late 1960s. I am pleased to say that I have managed to purchase this interesting bike from my relative - photos are at: http://picasaweb.google.com/MarkABattley/1968Colnago

It has been painted a uniform bright yellow at some stage, and some initial exploration suggests that the original paint must have been stripped when it was repainted.

It deserves a repaint: Does anyone have any information about what colours and artwork were used on Colnagos of that era? Any pictures of example bikes?
