The wonderful world of Colnago colours.

Speak to anyone about Colnago frames and the conversation will always include Colnago’s paintwork or colour schemes. On numerous occasions whilst I’m out riding and have stopped off at a coffee shop for refuelling, my Colnago always attracts conversation. Probably like you, I get approached by people of all ages etc telling me how they have owned or own a Colnago. Also, reminiscing about Colnago’s past race glories and the riders of the past and present. Its a great feeling when someone is bursting full of information about the marque and wants to share their experiences. I once owned an MV Agusta motorcycle which also stimulated conversation about this prestigious Italian motorcycle manufacture.  Its a great feeling that such a name can evoke such emotion from people sitting down shooting the breeze over a coffee with their partners etc. It kind of feels like you belong to this great big world-wide family of Colnago owners or enthusiasts! Anyhow, during the conversation, the topic of paintwork normally gets mentioned. I guess people are just so struck with the quality and design of Colnago paintwork through the ages. With this thought in mind, I though I’d put together a few photographs of Colnago’s artwork through time. Of course, quite a lot of these frames/bikes have become highly collectible and can fetch high prices. Who needs paintings, when you can hang Colnago art-work on your hallway wall or over the fireplace!
