What a pleasure knowing the legacy of this fine machine is safe in the hands of "one of our own". I'm thrilled you are the recipient, @RobbieTunes.

Enjoy the ride!

Stunning Pinarello. Something about red Pinarellos, kinda like Ferraris, that just look right.

BIG shout out to Metropolis Cycles in Portland, OR.
Arch made the transportation easy.
Eli packed it like it was his grandmother's.
I've not seen a better packing job.
Re-usable stuff, too, like straps with Velcro instead of zip ties, etc.
Their sticker is on my tool box.

When Josh mentioned doing it this way, I thought "we have a bike guy who won't pack????"
Now, I realize, Josh knows bikes, and Josh knows bike shops. Ace straight.

Makes looking at bikes in Portland possible.

I picked up this ‘84 Montello not too long ago. (edit: subsequently ID’d as NOT Montello and likely Record with special paint). Not sure exactly how I want to proceed with this frame which has a couple of small dents. Replacement fork. Rides straight no-hands and quick steering. Tribute paint to the gold medal won at LA 84 Olympics in road race by American Alexi Grewal.


My first bike with full SL frame.


Dent in chainstay is not small, but still cosmetic

Thanks all for posting your Pin's on this thread! Great collection. I was reluctant to start swapping DA 740x parts on mine for Campy, but it has had no ill effect. I am pleased with the changes and hope to complete the transformation over time.

It doesn't matter how beat up a Pin is, the ride is always great!

I picked this up last year off of the C&V Sales sub-forum in a moment of weakness.

Looks to be a 1987-ish Montello. It was a parts-donor for the previous owner, so only the frame/fork and some fasteners were sent:



And here it is after Groody Bros powdercoat and my own decaling and detailing w/ Testor's white enamel (not done well).

The decal set (CycloMondo) was for an 1989-ish model, with different SLX tubing decal style and the 1988 Campione downtube decal rather than 1984. I'm not sweating the small stuff.



Unfortunately, it's remained in this state since October as other projects (and non-bike stuff) have taken precedent. Hoping to get it outfitted and on the road this summer.

More pics here (link).

This is probably a good thread to put in a Pinarello request.

Looking for a Pinarello fork for the pictured (immediately above) 58cm frame. Chrome preferred. Montello fork preferred. Painted in Grewal tribute colors = more than acceptable.

I bought my '84 Record new in Seattle and built it up with mostly Nuovo Record (except for an SR headset and seat post and Superbe Pro brakes). I put team issue Look pedals on it in the early 90's, and then rebuilt it with Campy 10 speed index shifting about 10 years ago. I've got a carbon one, too (Paris with all 11 speed SR), and both of them ride like nothing else I've tried. Not to mention the most elegant fork crown ever made!

If we consider Memorial Day the unofficial start of the summer, it looks like I just got it done in time. It’s built around 1st gen Chorus and whatever I could find in the shed.

Crappy phone pic:


Just a couple of miles of test ride so far, so no strong opinions. The indexing seems surprisingly good for 7V Campy, but a modern freewheel and chain surely help.

It needs a longer stem. Roll down those bars till the lower flat at the drop is parallel to ground. Bars will give less reach. Move the saddle so the post grabs right the nmiddle of the rails. Then you install a stem thatīs 2 or 3cm longer and 1cm lower. Itīs a road bike...

Hey, thanks for the comments.

Yeah, that's an 80 or 90mm Cinelli 1A, which was the model I wanted to use. Unfortunately the longer 1A in my stash had a crack and had to get tossed. I have an XA of the more typical length for this frame size but I thought the 1A was more appropriate for a late 80s bike.

Since the frame is on the large end of my size range, I wanted to try the shorter stem anyway. The 44cm bars help to compensate for the shorter stem.

I like to split the difference between the track / racer-style parallel bar angle and the Schwinn "point the drop ends at the rear hub" style, since I spend most of the time on the ramps or hoods.

Does rotating the bars forward decrease reach? I'd think it just changes the angle of your reach, and encourage a bit more weight forward.

Hmmm. I thought I had the saddle centered but it does look off a bit in the pic. I'll need to check that - thanks.

The stem is just below the min insertion line so I can lower a bit, but I'm not as flexible as I used to be.

I was just going through some old folders when I first got my Pinarello and came across this scan from a german magazine advertising the Montello:



Interesting that it appears to be offered in SL or SLX. I wonder if the SL version had a chainstay bridge or not?

Bad translation:

The Montello 85 is also available in various special coatings as well as in completely chrome-plated export.

Campagnolo parts in the Pinarello finish can be found on page 12.

Nice to see people still contributing to this thread!
I am an individualist and adjust bars and saddles to my riding style. To each his own. No sense being uncomfortable because of others opinions!

Enjoy your ride and adjust as you go. It will change over time the more miles you put on it.

Here’s my Montello just before I stuff it in a box to fly up to Queensland, Australia for the Noosa Strade Bianche retro cycling festival.



Over the past couple of months I’ve swapped the Ergopowers for DT shifters and brake levers, swapped the seat post, touched up some scratches, cleaned, polished, adjusted, cursed and fell in love all over again.

Became a single speed until I realized that was silly. It is a wonderful bike. True to Pinarello, the stickers are peeling off as we speak. I was able to visit him and his factory twice and tried to get a job with him after college when I lived over there. A very nice man who was a giant in cycling.

I paid a gigantic 595,000 lira for this bike

GG







I'm digging up this post from 2015 because it didn't get the attention it deserves.

Giovanni built this for you? How did all that happen?

I'm intrigued with the paint - the two tone schemes didn't surface in their catalogues until '87, and the ones similar to yours were '89/'90, but it sounds like they were being offered earlier than '85, correct?

Is it SLX tubing?

595 Lira - so was that just for the frame? The price list below indicates the Montello frame was 495 Lira (close enough) or a complete bike for 2050 Lira. Just wondering if the pantographed parts are original or later additions.

What's the serial number?

Original owner bikes from this period are getting harder to find, so thanks for sharing this!

This Pinarello is currently for sale on Gumtree in Australia (like Craigslist): https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/padd...990/1227533615

Interesting - what appears to be a mid-80's model (Treviso or similar,) I've never seen a fork crown like that and the panto's to the fork crown and seat stay caps usually just have the GPT logo, but here we have 'Pinarello' as well.

Would also be interesting if it was SLX as Treviso's were typically SL, but me thinks that decal isn't original.

I hope it doesn't disappoint you, but your frame is not a montello but a super record. And its fork is completely authentic.
