It has been crashed but repaired, had the classic dents on top/down tube. The fork has also been replaced. Should be a chromed colnago fork i think.
The tubes was re-brazed in an earlier restoration but wasnt looking that good. I had to straigthen out the tubes agan since they still where a bit oval.
Search for esa mexico on google and you will find a yellow one, thats the one i got. You can see the damage clearly on those pics!
