Late to the game but I do have some info for you. I rode a Montello from about 85 until 3 years ago. From that era, the were built with SLX, had the traditional short top tube and did everything reasonably well (sprint, climb, distance). It was the top offering from their road line. Alexi Grewall won the 84 olympic roads on a Montello with the tricolore paint scheme. I parted the bike out to buy something modern and sold the frame/fork, a 58 ctc, candy apple red in excellent condition, for just under $400 on ebay. Pinarello decals tend to rot since they never clear coated so finding one with good lettering is next to impossible. Still miss the bike but really liked the modern rig that replaced it. Recently replaced that with a Prince, my 4th Pinarello in 25 years and first non-steel bike. With an additional $7-800 for parts, you should have a nice period unit. Hope this helps.stamp adams said:Does anyone know about the Montello steel model? Where it was in the Pinarello line? about 1990 production time period? How good of bike is it?
