First of all, how could you defile a Pinarello like this? What blasphemy. The motobecane is probably a great riding bike. Why not enjoy the Pinarello for what it is?

Next question is about the front derailleur: the dura-ace derailleur is bolted to a clamped on fitting on the motobecane but looks like it should work with the brazed fitting on the pinarello. Is that correct?
Thanks in advance for any information.
1) Correct, you must purchase a new italian threaded shimano BB specific to your dura-ace, It will all depend on year. If it's square taper you just need to get the right length. If it's splined well then I dunno. I don't even know when those started. You are in C&V afterall.
2) sounds like it might be a braze-on adapter on your motobecane, if so you're in luck and the swap is no problem.
