Wasn't aiming for a lightweight build (Okay maybe a little) but I built it to tackle the San Francisco Bay Area riding conditions. Built with mostly Bontrager components, SRAM Force group and a few lightweight trinkets from Fairwheel Bikes and Mash SF.

OK
Here is my steel ride.
She’s a Pinarello Dynalite - Banesto racing frame 'La Vuelta' model.
I'm running Campy Record 11s and I built up some Galli Top-Crit singles because they are Italian and they match the frame.
Before anyone shoots me for the tape job. It was temporary so I could ride it the next day...., I have traditional cloth bar tape (matching blue) currently.
The seat post has been changed to alloy to balance the quill stem

She sits at about 8.3kg on the road and rides better than any other bike in my stable. I bought her off an ex Banesto team mechanic from Spain and the name badge on the top tube is Juan Pedro Carlos. I tried looking him up on the internet...., but there is not a lot of details on the Banesto riding roster back in the 90's that I can find.
I have also heard a story that the Banesto frames were commissioned by Pinarello to Dario Pegoretti to build the frames for the Banesto team under their name....., I don't know if this is fact or fiction - but it makes a great story.

Apologies for the poor photos - they weren't taken with the intention for display

My sanino, I love it - columbus Genuis tubing and record 10 speed. this is the most comfortable bike I have ever ridden, shame the top tube is a bit short but I can live with that for such a great ride. I am just waiting for the frame to crack so I can buy a geneis volare. Before that though it will be stripped and the end of the racing season (19th October is the last one for me) and be repainted. It will be reassembled with super record RS and the record 10 speed will appear on a new steel steed a genesis equilibrium disc.
