'84 Pinarello w/Dura Ace, Campy wheels

'84 Pinarello w/Dura Ace, Campy wheels. Will update post with model. Going to look at this bike tomorrow. Seller wants me to buy this as he knows me and knows I will appreciate and take care of bike. Asking $700 for bike.

Bike should be in good to very good condition. Looked at e-bay some for price reference. Sounds like a good deal. Have made promise to wife to sell C'dale Optimo 800.

Opinions?

Regards,

Mike

An 84 Pinnarello for $700.00 seems like a pretty good price to me. Of course, I do not know how big the bike is, what shape it is in, if the components match, where it is located, etc. These, and a host of other factors, come into play when attempting to determine Vintage Bicycle Value.

In other words, not enough information for anyone to offer an opinion regarding potential value. But, if the bike did fit me, was in good shape and had a set of matched components, such as Dura Ace, I would be all over the bike in a heart beat. If the components didn't match, I would still give the purchase serious consideration.

Good luck with the potential purchase.

Unless it's in immaculate condition and you're in a very high priced market, that sounds high to me. However, we need the model and pics to be sure.

+1

If there were pictures we could probably decide. Seems like the price is at least in the right order of magnitude.

Tell him you're doing him a favor by taking care of the bike, see if he'll let you have it for $600.

$700 is mid-range for a bike with 'New' Dura Ace i.e. '85 or later. An '84 model would have old Dura Ace and $700 is high for an old Dura Ace bike. But, its a Pinarello, the frameset has alot of inherent value but it must be rust free, have very good chrome, very few if any chips or scratches and almost perfect decals. It should also have high end Columbus tubing throughout.

Some more info.

Asolo model Pinarello with 3 color fade paint. Chrome on chain stay is very good to excellent. Paint is good to very good. No rust, few chips or marks and normal color fade, I guess. I say this as I have no reference for how vibrant "new" paint would look. The PINARELLO decals are just about gone, just a faint outline of them. All other decals look decent. Medal head badge looks very good.

Campy wheelset, Dura-Ace drivetrain, both early '90s. All else is '84 spec. Shimano 600 brake set, levers and hoods are good. 3TTT stem (with Pinarello embossed) and bar, Campy seat post and early '90s leather saddle.

Thanks for your input.

Regards,

Mike

Um, I'm not aware of the Asolo being offered on 1984. The post 1984 bicycles often had decals refering to the 1984 Italian Championship victory. Is this why you think it's a 1984 model?

The Asolo I'm familair with was a late 1980s, mid-range model with Matrix/Cromor and New 600EX. This sounds like what you have, with some changes. Missing decals are not good. Again, pics are really necessary to provide an accurate assessment but it sounds like about a $300 bicycle.

I'd agree with Tmar on this one, sounds like it is being advertised as more than it is, really. The lack of the decals is no real surprise, as Pinarello decals from this period covered their eyes and fell off upon sight of the first bump in the road.

Also agreeing with Tmar, pics are needed, especially at this point, and there should have been a decal indicating the tubing used on this bike.

Reads like a brand spotter bike, not a top tier machine.

Thanks for you tip T-Mar. Trying to get pics off my sell phone.

Found this catalog picture. https://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/pinarello87/4.jpg The Asolo Italian Ice is the bike in question. So research shows it is a 1987. Frame and components look the the green bike. Except for the Dura-Ace additions.

Best picture I have for now. Should the lettering be in white like the Pinarello catalog shows? Or black?

Frame color is actually pretty good.

Not my taste in paint schemes but outside of that and the decals, the condition looks pretty good. It's a late 1980s mid-range model with a couple upgrades. OEM Pinarello log decals were white. It's definitely not worth $700. I'd say $300-350 in an average market. Slightly more or less, depending on whether the local market is hot or soft.

Yeah, as the guys have already said, the seller is counting on name recognition in the hopes that someone with limited knowledge will think they are getting a great deal. If the bike fits you really well and you love how it rides, it might be worth $400

Update. Seller had a change of heart and no longer wants to sell this bike. Oh well... the search goes on for some classic steel to add to my stable.

The bike was good, really only needed new decal set. The seller had money issues when he approached me. He must of worked them out.
