1984 Pinarello Treviso - finally almost finished

Bought this frame back in 2007


Shipped it off for a new paint job a year later. Didn't see it for two years. It came back looking like this:

Now, it looks like this:










Still needs pedals and the cables need trimming. The tyres are just dry fitted to the rims; need to get some glue.

And you can see my new Acorn tubular bag in the pics above. I also got my handlebar bag and it is awsome.









Not sure what to do with the lanyards on the sides; are they used to secure the bag to the bars or to a bag frame? This bag will most likely end up on my Paramount.

Sweet Jesus. I think I need to shower. The Fred spilled out
of the thread and all over me as I was looking at the pictures.

Wow, eye catching paint job. Very unique. Nice work on the small details (which was also said above).

The entire frame is chromed but only the parts showing are buffed, the rest is matte.

I have an aluminum headbadge but I need some sticky tape for it.

very sexxy

a straight blade fork would not look bad on this bike.

are there two different rear hubs/wheels?

the lanyards on the bag should hook to to small hooks attached to the fender eyelt at the forkend. I sometimes just loop them over the forkend itself.

Dr. Deltron was the painter. He had other projects. He was a BF member but I don't think he comes here anymore.

No, only one rear wheel.

Not sure I'll keep the 7-speed freewheel, the biggest cog is a 28. The derailleurs can handle all combinations but neither limit screw touches the derailleur; if I'm not careful, I could throw the derailleur into the back wheel.

Thanks for the tip with the lanyards; makes perfect sense but I never would have figured that out.

The bike weighs within a pound or so of my 2005 aluminum Orbea road bike. I can't wait to ride it.

Umm...I don't think those lanyards are that long...on my Acorn M handlebar bag they slide over the bars, just behind the hoods.
