Red, Cyclo cross , TIG steel frame , cast fork crown .. its got tourist gearing .. another red Bike.
I got it new in 90, when I sold my AlAn Cross Super , frame& fork./
guess it is the best looking Pinarello of the year by far.
amazing there a NOS still exists.
@jmalton9 I can't even comprehend how this is possible--like it came right off the showroom floor. Care to share details on the build?

@orangeology @Holdenwest Thank you for the kind words. I may make a thread as I did take photos throughout the build.
I decided I wasn't a fan of the brown. Old stock Selle Italia Turbo, black lever hoods, and black tape.

Where's the headbadge?
Great bike jmalton9! Why so many spacers? Perhaps that frame came with a chromed fork originally, but I like the painted fork best.
It was peeling from the bottom pretty badly. Have yet to find a well printed replacement.Where's the headbadge?
I'm not 100% on the model year but you could be right. I had actually originally purchased a chrome fork for it, but it had been cut.. badly. I picked the painted fork up from a fella in Portland and I guess I just didn't want to cut it up.Great bike jmalton9! Why so many spacers?

Great thread, btw. Used to want a Pinarello or De Rosa back in the day and love seeing the guys keep them looking nice.

how does one find a perfect fork for his pinarello in portland? simple as ebay, or ..?
@jmalton9 - Congrats on an ulikely find! I once thought of looking for a fork for my Colnago and actually found one but the steerer was too short. It was freshly chromed too! Beartiful bike! Love the Red!
Dispite starting this thread, I really am having debates in my head about having Dura Ace instead of Campagnolo on the bike. I may have to start collecting parts! Nothing less than record would be appropriate! I am gaining more respect for Pin's over time. Thanks all for your contributions. Keep them coming!
Very nice, fureshi.
I dressed it up
Wow! Stunning paint job.
@Bindapogs - Nice bike! Mine has that pearl like finish but it has gone south. I still think of replacing the 8spd DA for Campy but keep running into the $ wall!
Thanks to all the contributors to this thread! Keep them coming along with good descriptions of how you know what year or model it is. Don't forget to check out bulgier.com for cats. That is how I ID'd both of mine. At least I was able to narrow down the years and ID the paint scheme with model. BTW Trevisio is the town where they are built and the name is on nearly every bike. Yes there is a model Trevisio, but, IIANM (If I Am Not Mistaken), often the bike is actually a different model and may not have a decal stating which it is.
It's true that it would be better with Campagnolo, but the Mavic group is really very good material.
The best would be kept Mavic group for another bike (french bike) and purchase a Campagnolo group for the Pinarello.
The problem is always money.
