    Bike identification....Pinarello?

    Here I have vintage bike and i am not sure what brand it is. It` in bad contition and i want to restore it. I think it`s Pinarello, but it has no decals on frame. The only thing, what made me think of Pinarello is some cutout (pinarello, some "heart" outcut). all gear is Campagnolo, and actualy thats all i know for now. I didn`t find any pinarello bicycle with "bird" cutout on frame, forks, ...
    Is that even pinarello, or what is it?
    Pictures are bad, but can anyone help me, anyhow?
    Thanks...

    PS. I apologise for my "bad" english.

    GFC, FN relax.

    Probably a BIEMMEZETA. Check the underside of the bottombracket for the letters "BMZ"

    Hmmm it's probably biemmezeta if we compare those birds on frame...the only thing that made me think of pinarello in is that pump, and screw that holds seat, where it says pinarello...i will check for letters BMZ,and we will see..thanks a lot for now...

    Isn't that just the generic Columbus dove? If the only place it says Pinarello is on the frame pump, I wouldn't take that to mean anything about the maker of the frame itself.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    On the second image on the screw also says pinarello,but i think thats all. I'll have to go and look closely for all details...on the underside of the bottombracket i remeber there is a number 54,but i have to look if there are any BMZ letters.

    Value will depend on your skill to refurbish/restore, and just what you mean by restore. But I'd be surprised if you can ever get out of it what you put into it on a true restoration. I am thinking in the 350 range. I am often wrong on these things though.

    Thats the most f-ed up looking bottom bracket I have ever seen. But it looks like it was done by the builder or a home modify before a repaint. That could be a clue, but I am clueless.

    so that`s it, realy no one can help me identify this bicycle? Is maybe bottom bracket something that can be a clue? today i find out that when it was bought (i don`t know, in the 80s) in was really expensive and the guy who bought it was cyclist, so it can`t be piece of junk....i almost forget...The bike is very light and it has 12 speed gear system...

    26.4 post makes me think French, but every other detail is Italian. Italian contract builder, prolly, with a lesser Columbus tubing (?)

    on some other forum someone said this for similar frame, wich can be it... (but i still think there must be some letter BMZ on it, if it`s really Biemmezeta, or not?)

    "the frame is Italian. It was made by a small builder called BIEMMEZETA based just outside Padova. It was most likely built in the 80s. They made frames that were sold to other companies to sticker, and well as keeping frames to be sold in their own name. Beware because there's also a food manufacturer with the same name!

    The mark/logo/motif represents a bird in flight, and is not the dove used by Columbus. If you look closely, you see that it is slightly different from the Columbus dove. The dropouts were usually either Campagnolo or Gipiemme. They are supposed to be a good, solid road frames that ride well, and are very good all purpose frames. "

    Looks like a Wilier to me. Although I haven't seen a vintage blue one before. I'm mostly familiar with the classic copper colored one Wilier Triestina
