A bike of refined features, the seat stays are so elegant at the seat cluster. Out of curiosity will you be lacquering yourself, or having it professionally done?


Hi grilla, i'm going to have it professionally lacquered so that its been baked, it should last a bit longer then, cheers for the positive comments,
Lee.


Hi Lee,

Cheers for letting me know. I can't wait to see it when it's done!

This is a great build with colours and geom that just work with the glorious Super Record Groupset.

If I had one suggestion it would be to change that seatpost to a Campagnolo Record two-pin design from the same period.

Hi,

Does anybody how to determine the age of a paganini bike?

I have a paganini bike with a frame from cinelli, it looks a lot like the first bike in this thread, posted by mrlee, but mine is completly in chrome with a thin layer of red on the "main" frame.

Will try to add some pics later if someone is interested.

I'll give it a crack! I can tell roughly by the Panto design, Label style and colour scheme. Post it up.

I just added some pics to my user album, hope you can see them properly.

Dropouts are campagnolo, seat post 26,8 and fork/front hub (just?) 90mm.

If anyone can tell me a bit more about the frame I would be thankful.

Is it common with only 90mm fork width, I thought 100mm was "standard"?
Having trouble finding front hub in this size the one in the pics is a "normandy".

Very cool and unusual colour scheme I must say.
Looks to me like...

Tubing - Definatly Columbus SL tubing (going by the stickers on it and the frame panto's). No Pantos was usually Aelle tubing.

Year - 1985-87?? (has the newer style panto's and more of them then early 80's Pags). Also 26.8 seatpost is early size so I doubt its any later then 87.
Cinelli Bottom Bracket shells were used all the way from the first Paganini's up until the end of the late 80's.

Dunno about the hub/fork size. Thats weird. Could they be bent? Whats the rear spacing? 126mm?

Just going by the spacing and sizing of the rear end (if it is 126mm) and seatpost, you know it wont be any later then 87. You then add the fact its got Pantos on either side of the rear brake caliper bridge (I cant see in the photo very well but I think it does) and you know its not an early 80's one either as I'm pretty sure they only had 1 Panto on the rear brake caliper bridge. So probably 1985 is a good guess.

I'm no expert though so dont take my word as gospel haha.

Very nice.
More pictures of the Pantos and the inside of the front fork would help to confirm if its early or mid 80's. Early forks had the ribbing on the inside and later forks were smooth on the inside. Again, I'm pretty sure but not 100%.

Hope that helps, or I may of just confused the issue haha
