FS: 1989 Pinarello Montello

SOLD

1989 Pinarello Montello slx
Original paint and components in very good condition. A couple of minor chips that are hard to show on photos.. Decals are flaking, as is typical with Pinarellos from this era. However, they are mostly intact, which is better than most you will find! It's missing the non-drive side pedal dust cap, and there are some scratches on the rear derailleur and brake levers. Overall, it's a nicely appointed example of this top-of-the-line frame.

Measurements:
Seat tube, ctc - 54.5cm
Top tube, ctc - 55cm
Crank arm length - 172.5mm
Stem length - 100mm

Components:
  • Full Campagnolo Chorus Groupset (Syncro 1)
  • Mavic MA40 clincher rims with Vittoria Flash 19 tires
  • Cinelli handlebars (drilled for internal cable routing) and stem
  • Alfredo Binda toe straps
  • San Marco Rolls saddle
  • Regina America freewheel
  • Sachs chain
  • Ambrosio ribbon handlebar tape
  • New cables, freshly greased and lubed

Wow, beautiful Montello specimen. I have a 1985 Montello and it is an amazingly beautiful and great riding bike. Those brakes are arguable the most beautiful brakes ever made by Campy. Good luck with the sale (and rethink getting rid of it)!

Gorgeous. The chrome stays and painted brake bridge are interesting.

Free bump for you.

Wow Tom, -- another beautiful bike ! Kind of a rare occasion that I am glad a beautiful machine like this is a hair too big for me --- was an expensive C&V winter for me

--

to everyone else, -- I purchased a Colnago Super from Tom over the winter, -- this guy knows how to pack a bike. Took me an hour to unpack it and everything arrived in beautiful shape - buy with confidence

I would vote for Deltas as being the most beautiful, but if you are talking about brakes that actually work well and look good then I agree.

1989 Pinarello Restoration

Hi Tom, I came across this thread while searching for Pinarello Montello information. I purchased this Montello frame in Toronto's Bloor Street westend district after writing off my 1985 Treviso. The store is no longer there and I have lost the receipt!!
So unfortunately I am unable to verify whether or not it is a 1985 frame or 1989. This is due to the frame having the Spumoni paint scheme (1984 Olympics Alex Grewal win), but has the 1988 Tour de France decal just above the shifters. I am presently having it restored to original specs paint and would really, really appreciate any advice on items I need to source and purchase to complete this project. On a tight budget.
Below is the original setup. See attached photos.
Montello Pinarello Columbus SLX
Frame size: 52cm
Frame: Columbus SLX - with Campy dropouts
Frame Paint Scheme - Spumoni tricolor paint - Same paint scheme as Alexi Grewal in 1984 Olympics - but has an 1988 Tour de France decals by the shifters.
Frame Head Tube Badge: Pinned Metal Badge - not a decal
Number of Gears: 10
Bottom Bracket: Mavic 53-42
Brakes: Mavic Modolo Pro - I need the rubber hoods for the Brake handles and the white decals on the brake levels have also worn. where might I purchase these?
Rear Cassette: Mavic 10 Speed
Chainset: Mavic - 2 rings 53-42
Forks: Chromed Columbus SLX
Front Derailleur: Mavic
Handlebars: Cycloman Mod. Starling
Pedals: Shimano Clip-ins
Wheelset: Mavic MA40
Tires: Michelin Krylion 700 x 23C
Stem: Pinarello
Shifters: No manufacturer brand markings
Headset: Pinarello
Seatpost: American Classic
Rear Derailleur: Mavic
Saddle: Super Turbo

Hope you can help. Thanks very much.

Shifters look like Siimplex? https://www.velobase.com/ViewComponen...104&AbsPos=275.
Headset looks interesting. - VeloBase.com - Component: Mavic 310

1989 Pinarello Restoration

There are not many Vintage bicycle restoration services here in Alberta, Canada. If anyone knows where I may find a competent restorer close by and can vouch for them, please let me know.

FYI,
Headset is Mavic 310 or 312........highly sought after/expensive when NOS.
derailleurs are Mavic 850 SSC. Can't tell from the pic if the chainrings are dark anodized, but if they are, they will be the 630 SSC crankset. The non-SSC version of the 630 had silver chainrings.. So, it looks like you have full Mavic group on the bike, except for the stem (could be 3TTT), bar and seatpost.
Modolo supplied Mavic their sidepull brakes (They silk screened the Mavic /SSC logos on them, instead of the Modolo branding), so the Modolo Pros you have on there is appropriate to the group.
Simplex supplied the unbranded Retrofriction shifters for their SSC group.

Thank you for your help in sorting out these components!!! Especially the Simplex shifters!!


Much appreciated. Everyone is so helpful here. I only wish I had found this site sooner!!!
I have attached some closer pics for you to have a look at if it may help clarify. Thanks again.
