    Progetto Pinarello Vuelta Team Banesto NOS

    I picked up this very rare 1997/8 Pinarello Vuelta Team Banesto frameset from a dealer in Madrid Spain. What makes it special to me is that its a 'team' bike, not a 'replica' complete with toptube number tab and has a all the chrome of a deluxe frameset - very unique and rare. It's NOS (new old stock) and arrived in perfect showroom condition. I'm a long time Pinaphile and she will make a nice addition to my collection.

    OMG, it really doesn't get any better than that. I'd almost be afraid of riding it. Absolutely amazing. Congratulations.

    Super pretty, congratulations! Silver Open Pros with old logo Veloflex Pavés are so right on this build.

    Nitpick: I am a bit unsure about the color matching of the saddle, bars and hoods. The hoods are picking up the pearl of the frame quite nicely, but the tape becomes too white and the saddle too off white. Disclaimer: I'm looking at pictures.
    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    Major score. That is a classic. Is that Oria tubing? They moved to that in the later years. It looks great with the silver campy. I'm glad to see these NOS frames saved from a closet somewhere and built and put out on the road.

    Well, thanks kb, as for the 'white' saddle, it's NOS and showing a bit of its age. The bar tape will take care of it's self after a couple of winter test rides...

    Thanks brewster, tubes are ARX 18 MCDV 6HT which I believe is Pinarello proprietary tubing supplied by Dedacciai.

    Thumbs up

    The fork crown is really nice. So much more artistic than a carbon blob.That's a pretty nice bottom bracket casting as well. Those are unique touches you just don't see on modern bikes.

    Beautiful!

    It both amazes me and keeps me up at night to think that there are frames this stunning just sitting in storage somewhere in the world. They are too beautiful to be kept stored!

    Really like the colors and the build. To me, nothing is as sharp looking as thin-tubed steel bikes with low profile wheels.

    Congratulations on an amazing build! You're one lucky rider to find the frame in such condition. Kudos on the choice of components. Enjoy

    Absolutely stunning. I didn't realize that Pinarello was still crafting lugged steel as late as 97/98.
    Anyone who believes there are no stupid questions never worked in a bike shop.

    The number tab reminds me of when I was coaching juniors back in the 90's. One of them ended up with a 7-11 Merckx that was sitting in their warehouse for a while. It was a nice bike and he still rides it 20 years later.

    Sweet bike, you've done a great job putting this beauty together. How did you find the dealer?

    Any chance it was built by Dario Pegoretti?

    Pinarello Banesto

    Great looking bike-thought I'd share my 1993 in white Banesto colour scheme too. Still a great ride.

    Nice bike, ntresteing fork, do tell.

    To OP. Very well done build. Appears the front wheel is laced radial. Campy thinks that is a bad idea, warranty void.

    Mavic Cosmic Wheels- as standard as far as I know. Warranty long since passed and still running true! They were Mavic's equivalent to Campy Shamals and other deep section wheels
    Fork is Kinesis Aero-don't see many of these around now.
