I bought this as a first full restoration road frame, Never done one before so I thought I'd give it a whirl,

Dunno if this is real or not and if it's not I'd rather not restore it as a Pinnarello,

Can anyone tell me if it's genuine or not please?

thanks for any help in advance,

Mudguard eyes are somewhat surprising for an Italian racing bike...

Did Pinnarello do riveted headbadges?

Seat stay tops look Raliegh-ish. I doubt that an Italian frame would have such 'chunky' ones? They all seem to be slender and often fluted.
