Vintage 1980s KLÖSCH Pinarello Columbus SL Road Bike Steel Frame + Fork 56cm. Klösch was an Austrian bicycle dealer (Murtal, Styria) that sourced their frames from Pinarello and eventually other Italian frame manufacturers. I received this frame with this Pinarello engraved fork.I got this frame restored. The paint has been removed professionally with chemicals. Then the chromed surface has been slightly sanded not sandblasted! By hand to create a better underground for the transparent powder-coating. This has all been done by a professional company here in Vienna that is specialized in all kind of paint-works. In a last step the decals have been applied. The frame has a very nice finish, not totally glossy as you can slightly see the sanding on the chrome. On a few places a tiny bit (1cm) of the powdercoating is missing (seatpost lug, next to the binder; rear dropout), but that is only visible under closest examination.
The fork is in its original condition, chromed and not powder-coated. There are a few signs of use and age on the chrome of the fork, like a tiny bit of chrome loss and small oxidation stains. Overall it is in used, but good condition. In total it is a well made and very nice frame.
Not new, but very well restored, very nice looking and special in its appearence. The decals have been applied very accurate and they are high-quality repros from Australia. The frame was made from Columbus SL steel tubes. The steer tube shows the Columbus dove on the inner side. The frame is marked with "Klösch", "Parma Italy" and "SL58" (although my measurements are accurate).It is approximately 57cm tall (center - top of the seattube lug), 56cm (center - center). The top tube measures about 55.5cm. As a description is always influenced by a personal opinion I made a couple of supersize pics that help you to judge the frame yourself.
