Just bought a classic Pinarello - where do I start...
I was looking for a classic steel bike for a while, and finally bought one. It is a Pinarello Stelvio and as you can see, the bike is in rather average condition. The frame seems good and straight, which is a good base. Mechanically - the chain, chainrings and cassette need to be replaced, wheels need truing, etc. Looks like the bike was never properly maintained.
Just a general question, as I have never had a bike like this one before - what would you do and where would you start with it? Replace the basic mechanics and just ride as is, or complete a proper restoration, repaint the frame, etc? But where would you get the original decals and other details? And can the chrome stay be restored to its former glory?
The bike is equipped with Shimano 600, which I am not sure if should be there in the first place, but maybe I am wrong ;).
I attach some photos of the bike bike:
Any comments will be appreciated.
