Hi all
just spotted this - To good to be true? Probably. Somebody with an eye for a Pinarello can tell in a flash.

These are the only photos I have, from the advert.

If it's Bona fide I'll take it.

Thank you ladies and gents.

Looks like it is one of the German Pinarello bikes and not an Italian Pinarello bike. Or a knockoff.

Not like any Giovanni Pinarello bike I have seen.

Maybe not a real Pinarello, but a nice project for 30 euros!

I was about to say, forged dropouts, internal brake cable routing, braze-on front derailleur. Pinarello or not, it's a quality frame and worth much more than 30E. Good canditate if you are looking for a nice frame to ride, but not worth the risk if you're hoping to flip it for Pinarello prices.

Of course I brought it home with me.

Thank you for the input, I wasn't expecting it to be the most sought after frame in the world but it does have details, and well, for 30 notes it'll be a nice wall-piece for a year or two before I get it running. I may just build my first single speed with it.
Tx

Here are some better detail shots:

Is that powder coated? I don't believe it is the paint style of choice by Pinarello.

I am certain that it is not the original finish. The yellow vinyl graphics are quite poorly done and some of the letters are peeling.

I am certain that it is no Pinarello
