    Pinarello Treviso 1981 Restoration or Sell

    Hi boys and girls , im new to this forum and decided to make account just so people can help me with the thing im trying to do.
    First of all sorry for my english

    Okey lets start .

    So few months ago my uncle died and some of his things were given to me.

    So in all trash i found Pinarello Treviso 1981 and what i know about it is that its bought in Canada Toronto back in 1984

    It seems everything is original on it but : Tires and pedals are some off brand.

    Now i wanted to restore bike because there is some rust on it , paint is falling apart and overall its crappy i want to get new stickers.

    First of all i dont know much about this bike im not bike guy but some people are interested in buying it from me even tho the bike is pure shi... atm That means they know more about it then me because there is 5 people who saw it on road and asked who is the guy drivingg it and somehow they found my number and asked me if i would sell it. But ofc i didnt know the price of it so i sad atm im not interested.

    But i tought i wanna get my self some job and just restore the bike , i found original paint for this bike and i have original repear kit for it even tho most of the parts are able to be taken via hands only i guess this bike was made to be driven in some races because how easy is to change the tire without any tools.

    What should i do ? restore it and buy new stickers for it or should i jut sell it because atm i was thinking to restore it on my balcon of my apartment

    And if u say te restore what should i care about it on it .
    ill provide you with some pictures i took few days ago.

    Sorry one more time for my crappy english but i tried my best

    The paint is really rough, but still You might find a buyer wanting a frame for Eroica events, maybe for a few hundred.

    the parts are pretty much worthless. I have similar era Shimano 600 and 105 and basically worthless ( I got no bids on ebay!)

    If you want to restore the bike, you can spend $300-500 getting it repainted properly, decals on eBay for $40, and then buy a period-correct Campagnolo groupset for around $300-1200 - Campy Super Record or Nuovo Record. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vintage-Camp...IAAOSwA-1a3ky3 And a set of period correct tubular wheels with campy hubs for around $100 (I found a set like that for $100 myself) Getting some cheap hack job paint job is kind of worse than just leaving it with the original finish and some minor touch up.

    So you put in $2000 to restore, and you might end up with a bike worth $2000, more or less (or a lot less). Maybe it makes sense if you have an emotional attachment to the bike, memories and such like I did. Otherwise you might be better off just selling the frame alone.

    I see the asking prices for the Treviso frame alone are fairly high, albeit some of them unrealistic. That's what I would do with it. strip off those ugly shimano parts and sell the frame alone on eBay...

    I would encourage you to get a bottle of naval jelly and try to remove as much rust as is possible, don't worry about the paint....

    take it to your LBS or to someone who is structurally aware and ask for an honest opinion of whether the bike is structurally sound, and if so how they would recommend preserving it?

    once most of the rust is gone, I would attempt to mechanically upgrade with similar parts, they are very cheap on ebay and begin a mechanical and cosmetic restoration..

    Keep your expense low, once the majority of rust is gone, those individuals who are interested in buying may make you a serious offer, in fact return their calls and ask what they would like to offer???


    It is a kool bike, and while condition is rough, a little love might make you feel a lot better about just riding her...

    I found a guy who could nicle my Groupset for 10euros he would clean them all , they are only dirty as hell and few rusty spots but no deep rust , frame is in good shape never bent , there is some rust on fork but its all "rain drop" rust
    Tbh i dont know how much money i would get it in this shape if i was selling it as whole ... because here in bosnia people were saying 50euros max hahaha and i was laughing at that because i know its not 50euros i know its at least something more ..

    Tbh i do have emotional attachment but in same time i dont have exp in restoring bikes and i dont wanna destroy it more then it is .

    Soo u think i should just put it on ebay as it is and set it on offers and wait for some1 to offer money ?

    And what do u think would be my lowest price?

    Tbh if i was going to restore it a guy told me he would do everything for me in less then 100euros from : sanding the paint , to giving it original paint back , then making for back "nicle" if u call it like that , and he would clean out gears and everything.
    I just need to buy Stickers for it and paint which is 50euros more plus the painting 100euros and full restoration which makes around 150euros then i think i have big shot on selling it .

    The problem is . i went to biggest Bike shop in my city and asked them to help me and tell me what should i do ... and they told either u bring it to see so we do the job or u sell it to us , we cant help you.

    Thats why i came to this forum to ask people with exp to see what i can do or is my best bet just to sell it.
