His Master has landed!
Images proudly by Hans.
Hans finally received his stunning Colnago Master X-Light frame & steel fork. I'm glad for him as it took longer than expected to get it. Italian made and beautiful, I've only seen the images he sent me. Now it's at a local bike shop awaiting the parts to make it complete. Flashy and classy right to the finish, Beppe Saronni would stand proud.
The year was 1982, Saronni rode for the kitchen manufacturer, Del Tongo winning the Tour de Suisse, Giro di Lombardia and the World's at Goodwood, England. This Master X-Light was made in honor of his great wins and his fine World Championship victory.
Hans emailed me and said that he can't wait to ride it. Lucky for me, I may get a chance... too!
On his Master.
