1960's Pinarello (?)

I'm not looking at buying this, but it's been on Craigslist for several weeks, and I'm curious.

This looks like your standard entry level bike boom ten speed. I see a Huret rear derailleur, but can't tell about the front... Campy Valentino? Are those Campy shifters? Hubs look like cheap steel.

Oh, and note the "beautiful patina."



Comments?

here's the Craigslist ad:

1960s pinerello touring bike - $200 (highland park)

$200? Way too much. It's basically a piece of crap. I scrap on the side, and I've scrapped many bikes that were better than that one. ( I don't scrap collectibles, or good components, I know my bikes!)

A real Pinarello decal wouldn't have lasted that long. Obviously from some other shop.

Ah, now we're getting somewhere! So what do you think, Pinarello outsourced a bunch of gaspipe entry level BSO's to cash in on the bike boom?

FD appears to be a Huret Alvit, RD is also French. Pinarello decal appears to be a much more modern font for a 60's bike. My guess, a pig in a dress, and not a very convincing one either.

then again, first hit for "60's pinarello" on google result in this:

Still the wrong font, but does have a similar RD. Lugs are different also...

I have never seen a cheap Pinerallo....nor one this old.....The decal does seem convincing,though...the kind of zany modernism in vogue back then...but I thought Pinerallo didn't start until the early 70s......

I actually just purchased the same Pinarello but decals are in better shape. According to the bike collector I bought it from, it's a 1971 Pinarello. One of the decals says it was made in West Germany. It has a BF stem and Altenburger brakes. It actually rides really great.

I remembering hearing (well, reading) about a Pinarello brand that wasn't Italian. It was German or something. I can't provide any links, though. I read it on here a few months ago. I could be wrong, but hey, it's something to consider if I do remember correctly. Maybe this is one of those.

Does the fork look like it's bent backward a tad?

I'd pass on it, even if the fork was OK.
