my 1986 Vini Ricordi - Pinarello - Sidermec team bike ridden by Frederico Chiotto in the '86 Giro - still with original rider's name on the top tube. Interesting for the number of little mods the team made to the frame and components.

It has the TSX decal but there's no rifling in the seat tube. Next time I have the bottom bracket out I'll check the down tube. Weren't some built with Reynolds tubes?

The seat stays are mitered to fit to the seat lug & don't have the typical "EM" caps. I need to get more pictures up I guess.

That's why I asked what I asked - mine is Reynolds 753 and I suspect yours is as well. The Motorola team had some 753 frames built specifically for hill stages - though my frame set does not strike me as being especially light. I think they were afraid of going far after the Serotta disaster. I am not at all surprised that yours lacks the ridges.

I guess this is a team colour but I don't know if any team ever used these colours, the team kit would've been pretty wild, I'd bet....

I was curious if it might be 753 as well. (My Look 753 isn't all that light either at ~20.8-lb with mostly Chorus/C-record and a smattering of Mavic, plus cages, computer, pedals.) Lack of chrome is consistent with 753. According to the info I've found online, the difference in typical frame weight between TSX and 753 is about 250-300g or slightly more than half a pound. That's fairly significant, but the rest of the build components will have a greater impact on the overall weight. Probably hard to notice the weight difference once the bike is built up.

Enlighten me: What was the Serotta disaster?

The 7-Eleven team had bikes built by Serrota and a lot of them failed during the rides. I think there were something like a dozen frame failures during various races the year they used them. They were replaced by Merckx. Serotta has essentially said that the team pushed them into using lighter tubing than they should have used (it might have been true temper).

Not exactly worthy of this thread yet, but just picked these up yesterday:

1984 54cm Fuji Team:


1986 60cm Fuji Team


I normally ride a 56cm but the 54cm Team feels pretty good, will need a longer stem. So I'll build that one up to ride and then rebuild the 60cm and maybe flip it to fund the other..?

Anyone, I'll post pics once the rebuilds are complete.

I agree!!! I really lust after a Merckx. He was a force not to be forgotten and his bikes are likewise great! My interest and appreciation for Pin's is growing with the recent purchase of a 91 Monello in Spumoni. I wish the paint and finish was in better condition.

Great thread! More!!!
