My boss got a Pinarello bike as part of a recent deal.

It is a late 80's or early 90's setup at the latest. Campy stuff, except the hubs are Shimano. My boss was told the bike was ridden in the TdF.

The Pinarello frame is bainchi green.
Campy components
But Shimano hubs - but I think the wheels were swapped out.

So, what teams rode Pinarello 1980 to 1995.

And who rode Pinarello in Bianchi green?

    From the colour you describe could it have been Tulip Computers? Their kit was a bit like the colour you describe but I don't know if they rode Pinarellos.

    there are a few mistake in there

    Telekom rode Pina until 2003

    T Mobile never rode Pina (from 2004 to 2007 it was Giant)

    HTC Highroad never rode Pinarello (Giant 2008, Scott 2009-2010, Specialized 2011)

    Perfect, ty!  How did you get that list? I'm not concerned about anything in the 20--s. I haven't the bike in front of me now, so I'll have to repost next week after I've gone back to look for details which might reveal more.

    Obviously, I didn't give much in the op. I had just come from a friend's b-day party. That friend happens to be my boss's mother - so he was at the party. I asked him what the Pinarello was about. He took me by surprise, telling me it was a TdF machine.

    So, I'll come back with more detail, and photos if I can get them.

    Well, fiddle-de-poop. Just put in a long post to update, and what happens? The VR servers don't like it! I'm being BULLIED here!

    Long story made short. Nuovo Record rear derailleur. 6-speed freewheel. Friction down-tube shifting. Likely time frame mid-70's. Could be as early as 1967, no earlier. Might be as late as early 80's, but unlikely.

    So, from CC's list, that gives us Molteni, JollyCeramica, and Inoxpran. With JollyCeramica looking the most likely at the moment. Molteni is on the early side, and Inoxpran on the late.

    A google image search makes JollyCeramica team bikes all look bluish. Kinda of a cross between an electric blue and a baby blue.

    So, I'm comin' up with lots of nothin'.

    Well, ok. It mighta happened. Who knows. Or, it might not ha' happened.

    Anyway, c ya next time.

    Well, duh. Right on the front of the forks - it says "Team Inoxpran". And, btw, serial number is H445 (stamped on bb shell bottom).

    Gets me closer to "which tour". Certainly answers which team.

    And it also narrows down the time frame. Had to be from 1980 to 1983. Inoxpran started in 1979, but Pinarello began supporting Inoxpran in 1980. In 1984 Inoxpran became Carrera.
