Pinarello has always made track bikes. If you could provide more frame detail info, that would be better info for determining a date of manufacture. They typically have had two models during the '80s/'90s: The lower end "Pista Amatore" (cheaper tubing...Columbus Tretubi or Oria), and the high end "Bassano" (Columbus SL). What exactly does your tubing decal say, and describe the size and colors of the decal. Also, describe the fork crown and possible engravings on the frame.
