Pinarello? Please advice

i got this 'Pinarello' bike locally, which the previous owner told me it was professional repainted and all parts have been updated.

Pinarello is stamped on the bottom of the frame with serial # II 919. The fork is also stamped with Pinaerllo.

parts are as follows:
Campy Veloce shifters
Campy Mirage brakes
Campy deraillieurs
Campy Crankset
Campy Omega wheels
Campy cassette

As i dont know anything about Pinarellos, I am wondering if i should send the frameset to Allan Wanta to restore back to its original paint scheme, which will cost about $350 including painting and shipping.

I┤m no expert in Pinarello colour schemes or what it does to your feelings, but that bike looks just fine. If its an identified Pinarello, it is.

There were a number of Pinarello models made in the 80's which is the era I think your frame comes from. My concern is that it doesn't have "GP" cast into the seat stay caps or any other parts that I can see. I would expect to see the "GP" logo on a racing quality Pinarello from this era. Would it be possible to post a photo of the "Pinarello" stamped into the bottom bracket shell? From what I have seen, the word "Pinarello" was cast into the shell and not stamped into it.

The decals don't seem like genuine Pinarello decals either - but you did said that it was a re-paint so that doesn't matter really.

I hope others look at your thread and ease my concerns as to whether it is a genuine Pinarello. If it turns out not to be a genuine Pinarello you have saved $350 and still have a nice bike.

If I am wrong, and it turns out to be a Pinarello, I would suggest putting together a complete Groupset from either Campagnolo, Shimano or Suntour to complement the frame. This may be a long term project though.

The good news is that it does look to be a nice frame with a mix of good quality parts and should be a nice ride.

Have a look at the Pinarello brochures on this website:

http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/

You may see what I'm talking about it you look closely at the brochures.

Best of luck,

Gary.

As Gary said, there are some catalogs available at the bulgier link...and...there were Pinarello models with plain seatstay caps. Plain caps and chrome stays is new to me... Perhaps an early 90's bike?

Rear spacing?
Are the dropouts Pinarello, Campagnolo, or ???
Some pics of the lugs and fork crown would help as well...any cutouts at the lugs and/or near the brake bridge??

No idea...gotta be lower end, 90's. I would research when the logo went to the lower case 'a'...note the BB shell.

Lower end, but definitely a Pinarello - the cutout in the brake bridge reinforcement is a dead-giveaway. Probably Columbus Aelle tubing with a no-name lugset.

Still, awfully nice for $200! I vote to leave her as she is and ride the **** out of her.

So glad to see it is a Pinarello but unlike any Pinarello I have seen. I agree with the guys above and also agree that it was $200 well spent. Buldogge had a great thought about the lower case 'a' and Drillium Dude is probably spot on with the frame tubing grade of steel.

Yes I just took the bike out for a few miles. Though the bike is heavier than my carbons, it felt solid and smooth
