Any experts here on old Pinarellos?:)

I have found this add for a Montello, but something doesn't look right. The front of the frame seems ok, but then at the BB it looks like its been repainted. Cromor tubing sticker, and rear dropouts have fender hooks?
Did Pinarello ever made such a model?

The forks don’t seem Montello hence you are right to be suspicious

Definitely a quality steel Pinarello frameset from the 80's/90's which has been resprayed.
The bottom bracket lugs do point towards a Montello frame. The sloping fork crown suggests mid to late 80's onwards, though the fork could be a replacement (Need to check matching frame & fork Numbers)

It's definitely a pinarello, but I've never seen a montello with mudguard eyelets. They could have been added later though, looks like it's been repainted
