Most people (99 out of 100? 999 out of 1000?) would have walked by this sad-looking city bike without a second look.
Not us, though.
Surprise! It’s a Pinarello Pista.
De Rosa Mid-70s Track Bike All Chrome with Cinelli & Campagnolo Components.
Up for auction is one of the finest examples of Italian track bikes around, a handbuilt De Rosa all chrome track bike equipped with an original Cinelli Unicanitor suede saddle, Cinelli 70s chrome bars and track stem and 100% Campagnolo period components. Made in the mid 70s in Italy and engraved with the De Rosa logo on the frame. This bike was used in the 70s by a member of Milan’s track team and has been preserved in near original state since. The chrome is in excellent condition with only a small amount of pitting under the bottom bracket.
The rims have been updated to Velo Orange 36 spoke for a modern day ride but laced to the original Campagnolo 36-hole high flange hubs. New Vittoria Super Corsa clincher tires are also included and have been ridden for less than 20 miles.
This original Italian racer is assembled only with 100% period Campagnolo parts as shown below. Finer details include matching yellow Campagnolo bar caps, De Rosa matching yellow pedal straps and buttons and yellow team decals from the same period.
An original track bike in excellent condition that saw action from the Milan team in the mid 70s. It is in excellent condition whether you want to ride it everyday or just stare at it hanging on your wall, either option will bring you great joy, however, we believe that bikes are made to ride and this one will last you a lifetime.

This was one model down from their top tier track bike in the late 70s/early 80’s. This particular bike has never been ridden on the street (aside from my short test ride), and still rolls on its original Mavic sew up rims. This bike was factory drilled for a front break.
This bike shows its age with some paint dings thorough out but nothing serious and nothing down to metal. The Gipiemme group is mostly intact minus the headset and seatpost. The current seatpost is a cheapie kalloy, and the headset is a mix of a few things but works very well. If you’re looking to restore the bike gipiemme components are way cheaper than campy stuff. The correct post usually runs around 40 bucks and the headset around 60.
The cockpit is currently set up with scratched Cinelli 65-40 Crit bars attached to a 90mm Cinelli 1A. Classic track setup for smaller riders. The crit bars are just a smaller version of the Cinelli 67 pista drops. *If you would prefer I can ship the bike with almost brand new nitto B125 NJS track bars and a nitto pearl 9. But I think the Cinelli cockpit is way more fitting for this bike.
Very nice, though the colors are actually those of Team Weinmann, not Telekom as the seller incorrectly states.
