The paint on this frame is very good with a few chips. Decals are like any traditional pinarello from the 80′s, due to the lack of clear coating over decals after they were installed you will see many pinarello that have decals that just flake off over time, this is VERY common. This can be solved by getting a new set of reproduction decals. There are many on Ebay and other sites. Chrome is almost flawless and looks and shines just like the day it came out of the store, absolutely no rust or corrosion.
