My '86(?) black chrome Pinarello is finally finished and I thought, I'd share a picture. I found her sitting in the back of our LBS gathering dust. She had not been ridden in 20 years and the typically flimsy Pinarello decals were in great shape. The original SR levers had been replaced with Shimano 105s and the wheels were a mix of Shimano, Mavic and some no-telling-what-this-might-be-front-hub.
To fit my long legs, I had to let go of the SR fluted post and went with a silver Kalloy. Courtesy of ebay, I found matching levers and wheels, mounted a pair of Continentals and off I went. She rides great and is a lot of fun to look at, don't you think?

Despite the looks of it, the wheels are not 650s. :D I'm 6'4" and at that height, the original post had to be swapped. The bars are 40s and are narrower that my normal 44s, but it's a price I do not mind paying.
