Pinarello Montello

So I'm in the prpocess of restoring my 87 Montello and I have everything I need. But the headbadge is looking a old and faded. Any ideas on getting a new one or does anyone refinish headbadges? Any help would be appreciated. Anyone have a NOS one that they just don't want anymore and want to donate it to a good cause??? (that was a joke) I will pay a reasonable amount for a new(ish) one.

NOS head badges go for stupid amounts of money.

I'd wheel it into your local hobby shop and see if you can find some model paint to match the colors....

I've seen alot worse than your's. It really looks pretty good, especially compared to the fork crown, which looks like it will need some real work...

Great bike though. Keep us posted on the progress...

The way that badge was fabricated, attempting to touch it up will probably just make a mess. there was no etching of the base, just registered silk screening. The colors are transparent here and there.

As advised, NOS badges go for silly amounts on ebay. I suggest also that you use what you have.

I fully agree. Your head badge isn't too bad. I think your only option is to source a replacement badge if you really can't live with it. You will have to be prepared to pay the top dollar price though.

The replacement decals sold on eBay usually include a head badge decal. If it bothers you that much you could remove it a replace with decal.

An airbrush artist can touch that up.
