Colnago wannabe

It's a 80's Zeus with Colnago stickers. Maybe the previous owner thought Zeus wasn't a cool brand :-S Tried it with singlespeed and fixed configurations. After a while living in Madrid, I decided to sell it and get a geared bike in order to increase my chances of surviving daily commutes in traffic.

Being a Zeus and Colnago owner I'll say you are not actually increasing the cachet with Colnago decals. Zeus was one of the best and exclusive bikes in their day. Check out the dialogue on velospace.org (I have an entry there as well). If you are convinced you can get some excellent decals from Cylomondo. Velobase.com may help in typing the model you've got. You're sitting, literally, on a highly coveted classic. That said, nice job on this.

thanks fiorelli1!

ratherbebikinng, the bars are not very comfy, but I love the looks and it's my daily commuter, so I'm not very concerned. If you are interested in this kind of bars I would recommend spending a little more in a nitto montmartre, is narrower and has more possible positions.
