Not sure I follow, Old Fireleg. What's rare about a Montello with a Montello-type BB shell?

Thanks for pointing out this thread which I did not update after more investigation. Definitely an SL not SLX frame with chainstay bridge and no internal cable route. The chrome fork is a replacement Tange.

It's not the Montello-typ BB shell that is rare on a Montello, but the hidden gear cables.

How do you stand with the serial number vs. year of manufacture match?

I thought because you identified the frame as a Montello (and I saw that this is not a Montello fork), that the SR fork is the problem for you as a "foreign" piece on the Montello frame. Reason for my misunderstanding: This Tange fork looks (from side view) like the SR fork with Cinelli forkcrown and the place of engraving glittered on the photo. A complicated story.

1985 Pinarello Record, based on the '85 catalog.
I very rarely buy a bike that is already built, but I did here.
Only change I've made: 70mm stem to fit, swapped Daytona calipers for Centaur, and added those Campy pedals.
I like it.

Centaur Ergo's, FD, RD, Crankset, calipers
Record hubs, Chorus cassette.
H+Son TB14 rims, Vittoria tires,
Chorus post, SSM Regal saddle,
Cinelli steering, Fizik Wrap.

I have a C-Record aero bottle and cage for it, but they look "blocky" on this bike.

Long-cage RD makes me think about a new Centaur 12-30 cassette, but I have other climbers.
Thanks for looking. This is from @The Thin Man, but now, it's a matter of prying my cold, dead fingers..... YaknowwhatImean?








This is gorgeous. Jeeeeez!

All I can see is “D933”
May I be lazy and ask for a decode. Have yet to search for a serial # database.

Good luck, there’s not much to gain from Pinarello serial numbers. About the only thing that serial number will tell you is it’s pre-‘85 based on the X### format.

Given the paint scheme and the fact that Montello frames got the tribute colors in 1985, late 1984 is the only possible period for my bike. And a special paint on a Record or SuperRecord frame is my opinion.



But I still need a chrome Pinarello fork - all help appreciated in finding one at a not too crazy price. My frame doesn't warrant NOS.

Fair point. It wouldn’t surprise me if there was an overlap in serial number formats.

In my alternative, (which has exceptions and I admit it is not 100%), the single D was the last single letter before the introduction of the first double (EE).
The last Prestiges (what was Montello's predecessor) appear with A. And I've seen Montello with A, and lower numbers than two Prestige's. They were probably manufactured for a short time at the same time. My very early Montello has B.The A-D period, I think, covered 1984, and the Montellos were already manufactured for the '85 marketing year. This fits in with the fact that your SR's D was made after the Olympics, in the end of '84, so it could get the Grewal colors.

What a beautiful bcycle. Your list of bikes is impressive. I love the colors and the bar tape on this one. If you have any vintage time trial bikes can you please post pictures of them on my "Picture of Your Favorite Vintage Time Trial Bicycles and Why!" thread. Or if you have any that you would like to have post them too please.

So I just picked up another 80s Pinarello to complement my Montello. I thought it was a Treviso but looking at the frame, I'm pretty sure its a Record based on the cutouts on the BB lugs leading to the chainstays. Is that the differentiator? Anything else? Why did they need two different Columbus SL models?

Here's my new winter project - a Pinarello Record (I believe from the cutouts on the BB). Came with a set of tubulars (which I'll never use) and MA-40 clinchers on 600 hubs, and a smattering of other parts. Not needing another Pinarello with 8 speed, I've decided to keep this one DT Nuovo Record. I cleaned off the clincher wheels, and gave a light wipe to the fork with tin-foil and WD-40, which easily cleaned off the rust spots but it's otherwise as I received it.

Pinarello montello?

Hello there! New to the forum, ive spent far too many hours browsing forums without being able to pick what seems some very knowledgeable brains.

I've recently purchased what i believe to be an 80s Pinarello Montello (frame only) from ebay. It was the last piece of the puzzle on whats been a long, long project. After looking at it obsessively, ive got some concerns regarding it's authenticity.

Would it be ok to post a few pictures?

Many thanks in advance!

You'll need 10 posts before you can post pictures. Soooo what are your concerns?

My apologies, i wasn't aware.
It's going to be difficult to explain without photo's, but i can certainly try.
The gear cable runs inside the bottom bracket, with no bridge. (ive read various things regarding that, some stating its a good sign, others the opposite)
The pinarello logo nearest the brake mounts, is under rather than on top (ive seen lower end models like this, but not on any montello model)

The frame was bought at auction, and has been referbished by a company called Bob Jackson cycles in leeds, UK. The seller seems totally legit, looking at past and present frames that are for sale/sold.
Like i said, without photo's or a link, this may seem difficult to go by. I appreciate any feedback or information.
Thanks again!
