Pinarello Treviso 80s

Hey guys,

Starting another thread as the Tommasini was swiped right from under me. I'm extremely bummed I missed out on it as the chrome and paint job were so nice, but realistically it was at the top of my price range and the included components weren't amazing (and, my wife was already pissed about me talking about spending $900 on a bike!).

I've luckily got another strong lead, although this time through craigslist, on a Pinarello Treviso. The owner is not sure of the year and is estimating between mid to late 80s. I've been looking at brochures online I believe it has a strong resemblance to this bike: https://www.bulgier.net/pics/bike/Cat...arello89/5.jpg

The asking is reasonable at around $450. I'm thinking about checking it out tomorrow but its a decent drive away so I wanted to see what everyone thought. Thanks in advance!

Myself, I would be driving. I do not know why this bike is still available. And I would not wait until tomorrow. I have seen where discussions here can highlight deals, and forum lurkers or whomever end up pouncing.

Anyone considering that bike, with a quick google search, they will find this thread, and see the opinions: go get it. So they can and WILL launch out and grab it. It has happened to me, so I never post potential buys here, and instead, post them AFTER I have bought them, and rarely/never with the price paid.

Haha Bill, I thought the same thing about the Tommasini. I was thinking either someone that works at the shop overheard the lower price or someone on here snatched it up after recognizing the vague details of the location I had mentioned. I unfortunately have to wait til tomorrow because of the seller and my schedule, but the guy has been real cooperative so far. I'll keep you updated as I will definitely want your expertise on maintenance and possibly upgrading of the bike's components. Thank you.

Looks very nice for $450. Tough to find a nice one at that price and it will make your wife abit more happy!

Look's like an early 80's model to me though. The lack of a FD braze-on and the lack of a second water bottle braze-on, along with non-aero brakes tells me it's not a mid-to-late 80's.

Nice looker and it should be a great rider!

It got a pump peg and appears to have dual bottle bosses but no front derailleur tab, so it's probably not a Trevisio, unless it's a non-USA model. While I've never seen one with a chromed crown it looks like it could be an Aelle framed Veneto, as there doesn't appear to any embossing on the stay caps. Looks very late 1980s. Souldn't be older than 1984 based on the 1984 Olympic Victory decal.

Shifters are mid-1980s New 600EX but remaining components appear to be 1978-1983 600EX and would appear to predate the frame.

If so, not a great deal but fair.

is that a crack I see in the letter O on the 3rd picture? I'd look carefully at that area.

That's nothing compared to all the cracks, chipping and distortion in the seat tube logo. The Italians were notorious for having fragile decals and not clear coating them. Some distributors set up their own painting and decaling operations because customers were unhappy with the shoddy workmanship coming out of Italy high end bicycles. It's hard to justify decals that flake after only a week when a customer has just shelled out $1,000.00. Of course, in this case it could also be representative of a repaint.

Looks reasonable to me, I think your judgement is good enough to have made this purchase or not have to ask on the next potential bike. Just share your purchase afterwards.
