newbie to vintage & classics. Been reading for a while and really enjoy this forum so took the leap a couple months ago.
I finally unearthed my digital camera, bought a replacement battery & took a few pictures of the Pinarello Treviso I posted about a couple months ago. Wow, time just flies by! I feel fortunate to own such a well cared for beauty! One of the Campy skewers has a yellow background as seen in this blurry image. http://new.photos.yahoo.com/jeroenpr...04214095453/26
Was just wondering what is the significance if any? Maybe the previous owner did it? Thanks for any insight on that. Given the state of the weather and a few other issues I've only had the chance to ride it once for just a couple miles so can't give a real ride report yet.
My other question relates to building up a late 80's Pinarello Asolo.
Anyone have any advice on a build up since it is my first attempt at building up a frame. Tips on the best, cost effective way to source used parts would be appreciated since I'm on a tight budget. I want to use ergo brake/shift levers instead of the downtube shifters on this bike. Or maybe keep the downtube shifter for the front and go with an ergo shifter for the rear. Anyone have parts they want to get rid off or sell? If so please send me an email as this forum is not the classifieds. Hopefully i didn't break any rules by writing that but I would rather get a reasonable deal from a fellow enthusiast on here then a steal from elsewhere. Dreaming about a repaint or powdercoat too but that will have to wait as I'm considering going for another fulltime degree (MBA).
