Ernesto Colnago celebrates his 80th birthday with special bike
Ernesto Colnago has built some spectacular bikes over the years, and this special edition for his 80th birthday is no exception.
The special bike is called the C59 Ottanta – which means eighty in Italian and has a gold finish. It was inspired by the iconic Colnago bikes of the past that were used so successfully by so many legendary professional riders and loved by thousands of cyclists around the world.
The C59 Ottanta has Master-like arabesque lug decorations and Ernesto Colnago’s signature, yet is made from the best possible carbon fibre and fitted with Campagnolo Super Record EPS 11s electronic components.
Just 80 examples of this very special limited edition bike will be made and 20 have already been snapped up by collectors around the world. Price? If you have to ask....
