Take a look at what just arrived in the post
One of Treviso's finest and not in as bad a condition as I was expecting. The decals have half melted off as normal and the paint is a bit worn but there are no dents or cracks. Some of you may have seen it on the bay and my nose was drawn to it from here - very chuffed as it's exactly my size (55cm) and it didn't cost the earth unlike some I have seen recently (admittedly on ebay).
The intention is to do a complete refurb with new paint, chrome and decals; this will hopefully do justice to the minty C Record groupset that I have had stored away for the past few years
I know that this is predictable but I've lusted after a bike like this since I was a spotty 14 year old in the early 90s!
I know that Pinarello made these from the mid 80s with subtle evolutionary changes in subsequent years. From pictures of other bikes and some internet searches I think that this frame dates from 89-91. If anyone has any info or can pin a date down I'd be grateful as I probably won't replicate the original paint scheme but I would like to do something faithful to the year / era - fluro flames are definitely out!
