The Pinarello name is a staple of the Italian bike scene.  Giovanni Pinarello put money he was awarded from winning the ‘Maglia Nera’ in the 1951 Giro to good use, establishing his own bike brand two years later.

You will still find the original store in the main square of Treviso – and frames of the 80s era were all awarded names of villages, and more critically the climbs from the area.  Asolo, Bassano, Veneto, Treviso and Montello to name a few.

This frame has been around ‘since forever’.  It came in very good original condition, but with one too many battle scars for my liking.  It was resprayed  in ‘rosso red’ by Paconi and lay gathering dust until now.

Tim of My Mountain had the Shimano Dura-Ace 7402 groupset from as many years prior with a view of a Motorola replica that never came to life.   We hatched a collaborative plan for the MCBS and this is the result.  Cinelli cockpit rounds out a true classic of the road.

If you like your pasta with a side of rice – and your bikes to be nice this 57cm Pinarello Italian bike build beauty is waiting.
