A Colnago. Another similar example of disc wheel art to what I have been showing you….very cool. What I really like is the unique huge solid chain ring. I love how it looks, but could someone explain the purpose of it being like that? Interesting handlebars too. Nice period correct saddle too. This is a nice track bicycle.

Think it’s just the same as a disc wheel – preventing the spider arms from stirring up the air. Edit: what T-Mar said.

I love that Colnago you posted right here. Those Colnago Italian flag target disc wheels are insanely cool! I saw one on ebay and passed because I need a Colnago to go with it. I like things matched. The price was reasonable and that thing was mint….pretty rare. The guy was in Argentina I believe. They are beautiful wheels. The front one here looks in better shape. I love solid chain rings…..totally. They are super expensive now. The huge disc that fits over the chain ring is unique though. The pedal is on its outer circumference first of all. Also, it is frickin big. And it is not an actual chain ring as T Mar pointed out. You are correct in that the same principle applies in that the goal is to cut down on air turbulence. I wonder if it really worked. It looks cool though and very unique.

And…..

Man that frame is nice….beautiful shape and design…but star of show is the disc wheels. They are for the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics if you can’t tell, and man are they gorgeous! I would crawl over a thousand feet of glass for these….but seriously I want um. The fact that they commemorate such a great event is part of their mystique of course. But they look sooooo cool. The stars…the rings…..aaaaah…..these must be as rare as an honest politician. I am trying to imagine what they would sell for. I am going to say that you might have to get a bank loan to get um. Of course the period correct saddle and bullhorns don’t hurt.

That Gefsco frame is a work of art. It is very subtle and has the spirit of mastery. I can see why he was so highly respected. It is a truly beautiful frame. Thanks for he article too which is always great because it increases our historical knowledge. Thanks so much for sharing with everyone.

Beautiful Pinarello. The violet shades paint scheme is gorgeous. They made a lot of vintage TT’s so was a specialty for them I would say. Their bikes are usually lovely things. Like the aero seatpost. Do not like the bulky handlebar stem. Shamals are nice…not my very favorite but nice. Period correct saddle as is best.
