ID this Pinarello!

So somebody wants to sell me their Pinarello Treviso for $400.

Judging by this picture, what year do you people think it is? She told me it's maybe 18-19 years old.


The seller told me it has a "campy" group. I asked which, and she didn't really answer.
Besides the obvious addition of the tri bars, I think it's all original.

So where were the Trevisos in the Pinarello lineup? (Terrible, Good, Super-Fantastic, etc. )
And based on that, is it worth the cash?

Thanks,
wanlogan

Treviso was 2nd, if I remember. Record was top. For 400 bones, snap that baby up!

Unless It's in terrible shape that's a steal for $400. Ditch the aero bars though.

Sounds like a fair price. I paid 350 for my '85 Treviso, but it had been parted out a bit. '85, '87, and '89 had just the drive side chainstay with revealed chrome, so i don't know what year yours is. maybe '84?

Three catalogs here:

Edit: As you may know, vintage italian parts are pretty durn expensive so if it needs anything but tires and cables, assume it's going to cost you on the upper end of the price range to replace.

I might want to be sure that seatpost hadn't done damage.

Aero levers have been around since mid 80's.

Treviso or Record?

It's hard to tell from that picture if it is a Treviso or a Record; if I am not mistaken, the dual chromed chainstays, semisloping crown and dropouts may suggest the latter (it looks exactly like my frame, which is an '84 Record Equipe). All of the Pinarellos from the 80's said Treviso on them- its where they were made. And that is a good buy, especially after you ditch the aero bars!

I thought Montello was the top, or did Indurain ride a lower-end bike?

Thanks for all of the responses!

We'll see how it goes: I'm meeting the seller sometime tonight. I took a look at a few of the Pinarello catalogs Bulgiers.net has-- I sure hope it's a record! It looks like the Treviso had an array of components during its timeline, though. Everything from Campy GS to Super Record and Dura Ace in the later years (as an option).

Hello hope I am not putting my two cents in too late but just looking at the crank I would say Super Record? looks like a real nice bike.

wasn't Indurain still a 'Domestique' in '85?

Pics of my '84 Pinarello Treviso



If you look closely at the chainstays, you can just make out where the original paint lines were

Right, but in the catalogs, 85, 87, and 89 didn't have two chrome chainstays. So my guess was later, not earlier, based on aero levers being more common in '90 rather than '84.

Anyway, don't all Pinarellos from that time frame say Treviso on them, since that's where they're made?

I reckon DMP's on the money. I've got a matching 84 record in my garage at home. That looks like a chromed fork crown. Does it have a braze on for the front derailleur. If it is a record, you have a fine bike there. And it must be in good nick if there are still any transfers and/or paint left on the frame.
regards - Jeff

My suspicion is that the aero bars were a later add on. My '84 Record has both chainstays chromed; I am not sure if the pictures in the catalog reflect a change in how they were produced in '85 or not (I think the paint was applied over the chrome, so it could be a paint job variant. I actually always liked the asymmetric chrome, but my bike came with both stays chromed).

bbattle- did you replace the decals on your bike? - that looks like the late 80's or early 90's font.

I'm with dmp too. My guess is 1984 Record.

Looks like chromed seatstay caps, chromed fork crown, 2 chromed chainstays.

Records do have a decal on them that says Treviso, which can throw one off.

The way the bike is pictured is how I got it. crappy paint job with crappy decals. This thread is just what I went through two years ago trying to ID mine; '84 Treviso seemed to fit better than anything else but who knows? I was told by my painter the entire bike is chromed but underneath the paint it's not so pretty.

<keep watching this forum for exciting updates>

bbattle & dmp: The PINARELLO logo on the down tube does look "late 80's or early 90's". If is is indeed an '84 frame, then my suspicion is that the decals had been redone. Pinarello was notorious for their lack of clear coat, and decals were coming off quite often.
