Giovanni Pinarello was born in Catena di Villorba, Italy in 1922. He was the eighth of 12 brothers. At the age of fifteen, Giovanni began making bicycles at the factory of Paglianti. After a successful amateur career he turned professional in 1947. After his carrer, in 1952 he founded Cicli Pinarello S.p.A. in Treviso, Italy.
The ”Treviso” was a landmark model for Pinarello, their top model in early 1980s and basically the frame with which Pinarello started to dominate on cycling races around the globe (later in 1984, the Montello SLX was launched). In early 1980s Treviso achieved many important victories. The superb frameset is made of high end Columbus butted tubing with Pinarello’s special designed bottom bracket. It’s easy to detect beautiful engravings on the top of the slopped fork crown and seat stay, Pinarello logo appeared in many locations like lugs and bottom bracket and rear brake bridge.
Proudly presenting another Italian steel racing machine – Pinarello Treviso, which dates back to mid 1980s, build with Campagnolo Super Record groupset, 3ttt Pinarello pantograph stem, San Marco Rolls saddle, Mavic GA40 rims. No much words needed.
Great catch for any vintage bike lover. L’Eroica ready.
