Subject: [CR]intro and a pinarello geom question

hi all, been browsing through the archives and enjoying things, so i'm joining the list, probably mostly as a lurker. started road biking this spring, with a used serotta ti, and recently acquired an early 1980s pinarello treviso (red!) which i totally love. bike just feels great to ride... hard to describe. i got it as a commuter, and now i'm thinking i'd miss it more if it got stolen.

anyway after my first couple rides i got in a small crash and bent the fork; went to a good shop and they've put it back in excellent condition... but my question is, what is the rake of these early 1980s pinarellos? (mine is a 58cm seat tube one, from my measurements). it's hard to measure rake, i know it's between 40-45mm, but does anyone know exactly? -- 'cause if i ever lose this bike, i'd want another exactly like it.
