The Master X-Light was a superbike in the eighties. The bike geometry is so different from the designs of today: both head and seat angles are very sharp, an extremely shallow head tube and straight-bladed forks. Certainly an aggressive design.
Colnago recreated the frameset in 2013 to mark the 30th anniversary of the X-Light.
This video reveals some of the craftsmanship inherent in the design. The star shaped tubing is custom drawn. The lugs and fork are finished in chrome. The frame is made by a master frame builder at Colnago. And the incredible airbrushing and masking. All done in Italy.
