Pinarello Something or other - What is it? What's it worth?

I just acquired a bike that I know very little about. I live in an area with not much ability to do road biking so I am mostly on the trails with my MTB however this was just too intriguing to pass up, but I know it's not for me and will probably be selling soon if I can find out some info on it!

Here are some pictures, hopefully you experts can help me out. Thanks, from the new guy

nice looking bike. I am not a Pinarello expert but judging from the Campi Victory group I would say it is a '85ish bike. is there any tubing decals? I don't recall seeing pantograghed Victory chainwheels before. those Elite rimes and nice but can be hard to get the tires on or off of.

great entry level racing bike, good quality components, nice lugged frame. IMHO this is a great first bike, should be a real headturner after a good cleaning. enjoy

PS I would just pitch that chain and get a new one. if it is that stiff I would not aggrivate myself with it.

Yeah the chain is trashed I will grab another and the bike needs overall cleaning and lubricating.

Anyone else have any info?

Check out the 1985 Pinarello catalog here - https://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/pinarello85/. Has same components as Catena Lusso, but fork is chrome in catalog.

Looks to be a Pinarello Treviso. What does the bottom lug look like? The gruppo is Victory for sure which makes it around 1985. I would guess it would be worth 400-700 depending on condition (in CA). Does it really not have water bottle braze-ons? Or, are those, gulp, cable guides? Take those zip ties off! A little shocked those decals are still looking good.

A lot like this one:






Best I recall it is a 1984 Trevisio Victory Corsa. There used to be a white "Victory Corsa" decal right at the front of the top tube on both sides. There was a similar model, identical, full pantograph also, that said Triumph Corsa etc.

I have an old 1983 Treviso that was one of our team bikes back then. The retail for just the frame and fork no headset was $1,395.00 back then. Team members had special pricing. Our groupo sponsor was Suntour and Sature rims, and Dia-Compe brakes.
Being pretty worn by now I've replaced he wheels, cranks, seats, and such.
Current set up is worn to the point the bars are bit loose in the Cinelli 1R stem and the Campangnolo Super Record seat post lets the seat slowly pivot. That takes about 100 miles.
The goofy red tires have been replaced with some Specialized tough things that are better at fighting off all the junk found on the roads and trails.
The crank is a Campy C-Record and the front and rear gears are switched using Campy SR, which I've always liked the look of.
Contrary to popular belief this color scheme was NOT created to commemorate the 1984 Olympic win. This color scheme was referred to as
And yes those are vintage Ritchey mountain pedals. I wore out the Time shoes and did not feel the need to spend a ton of money on shoes. Ah, the pain of being old, fat and sponsorless...

The frame is Columbus SL, and back then I recall we called this a Treviso. The year before we had solid red frames with chrome forks and triangle, also Treviso.

Sounds about right. I'd say somewhere around a 1985 Catena Lusso.

Hmm, the catalog shows all chrome fork, though. Could be because of different year or different model.

Tubing sticker content could help nail down model. The 85 Catena Lusso should have Aelle.

{oops, missed the earlier posts that went over this. Distracted by pictures!**

The 85 Triathlon didn't come in that color (Bordeaux)

Could also be an 85 Treviso Victory. Tubing sticker, if legible, would determine that.
