The frameset is just a Pinarello. No reason to especially value it for reconversion, but cable clamps will replace the braze-ons. The rear der hanger? A claw will do nicely, because it had better. Do you think it will be practicable to replace the drop-out-specific rear der hangers that are coming through today on pricey production frames in 10 years, let alone 30?

3200 looks at the single pic, and best offer ($300) barely covered the cost of the sound and conservative Velocity wheels......Maybe there was some doubt over the number of karats in the "gold alloy [spoke] nipples" ..... or concern that if they were solid 24k and not just plated, that they were waaaaaaay too heavy.........

And the saddle doesn't look right, does it?

Keep a grip on what's important.
