BB length???

Hi, could you tell me what's the length of this crank's BB? I wanna use the Ofmega Bianchi-panto crank too, but I'm confused about the BB length. Thx.

Woooow Superbike

your bike is a dream........

looking so much better.

i'm jealous


If they look like the old high flanged Campy records, they are probably Ofmega hubs, given you got some of the rest of the Ofmega group on the bike. I have a set which came as part of the complete Ofmega Super Competition group which came on a 1985 or so Pinarello. Campy-copy to be sure, but nice stuff. And nice bike.

thanks for that. makes

thanks for that. makes sense. now im more inclined to pick up a set of black ofmega track pedals.

looks like a road bike conversion

those are some seriosly slanted gpm drops. and front brake mount ?



are you being sarcastic?

they did a damn good job if it is, since they would have had to rechrome the stays along with the dropouts, grind off all the braze-ons, fill the brake hole on the bridge and repaint/re-decal it afterwards. have a look at this photo:

serial number of C559 dates it at 1986.

here is a link to the page in the 1986 catalog with this bike:

as you can see it has the exact same decals in the same places and the stock crankset. (although yes, i know its completely possible that someone could have gotten the crankset off an "real" pista an installed it on a "road conversion")

the bottle cage mounts are RivNuts.

the other frames made that year were no where near as tight as this and the fork is definitely a track fork, even though someone did drill it for a brake.

thanks for playing!

adam where did you find that

adam where did you find that frame

Great find. A real pretty

Great find. A real pretty bike with dope components.

Wow wow wow!!! Great

Wow wow wow!!! Great craigslist find! I'm jealous! These lugged Pista frames are so much better than the new ones!

Ditch the quick release stuff and the water bottle cage, and yeah...that stem has to go...and you go a great ride!

These old Pista frames sell more than the new ones do!
