Help IDing a frame

G'day Classic and Vintage brains trust,

I'm a long time lurker, first time actually getting an account and posting.

I have recently gotten my hands on an older steel lugged road frame that has the branding Pesaro Tri-pro, however I can't seem to find anything about it.

I'm unsure if it's perhaps a niche frame builder or potentially it's another frame that has been repainted and stickered.

The ID on the downtube is GB890551, and has 753 stamped on the lugs (Reynolds perhaps?)

Any help would be greatly appreciated from the grand knowledge base of you fine ladies and gentlemen.

Thank you, Jemery

Welcome, Jemery! The serial number looks decidedly Asian. Giant comes to mind, but they stamped their numbers on the bottom of the BB shell, AFIK.

Pictures would help a lot. You are not allowed to post them here directly until your post count is up to 10 (sorry, anti-spam measure), but you can upload them to the Gallery (see menu at the top of the page), where other members can see them and post them here.

It doesn't ring any bells with me, but I'm sure other more knowledgeable members will be along shortly.

I agree that the serial number format is consistent with Giant of Taiwan and, if so, indicates late January 1988. While the bicycle has been substantially rebuilt, the brake calipers, which appear to be Shimano Exage Motion, would be consistent with the timeframe, as would be the fade paint scheme. I'm not concerned with the serial number location, as manufacturers often employed different locations for different geographic regions and I notice that the OP is located in Australia.

As for the branding, Pesaro is an Italian city on the upper Adriatic coast. Naturally, there is a bicycle shop named Pesaro Bici but according to the website, it's only been in existance since 2012. I'm guessing it's a house brand for some company who's founder has the surname Pesaro or who's heritage stems from the Pesaro region of Italy.

Thanks for your responses and for the photo share guys!

Yeah it had exage 600 or 300 on it before I removed them for an updated drive train, hence the lack of drive-side images.

It may have been updated along the line somewhere to that drive train when changing to the flat bar set up, bit I must add I'm as far from an expert as they come. I did notice inside the bottom bracket that it was painted blue, I don't know if this is an indicator of just the base coat or original paint, either way I'm enjoying this project and again, I appreciate your help.
