Frame, probably from the mid 1980s. I don't know the exact year of production, this is just an estimate of the period.
The frame is in original condition with signs of use. Paint and decals are original, of course. The paint is not perfect, but good. The biggest imperfections I want to point out are: some paint loss at the left rear stay, near the seattube lug; a rub mark on the downtube (underside, caused by a bike stand); a tiny oxidation stain on the underside of the top tube (near "Sprint" decal); a bit of paint loss on the bottom bracket lug. The fork shows some smaller oxidation stains to the chrome.
There may be the one or other additional small scratch or mark, so please see pics and judge yourself. I think the XXL pics allow you to judge the condition yourself. I personally would rate it as optically good to very good. Technically the frame is in very good condition. The frame is made of Columbus SL Steel tubes.
The frame is marked with "58" the bottom bracket lug, but I measured it 2 times and come to a smaller frame size. The frame is about 55.7cm tall (center - center), 57.1cm (center - top end) and 56cm long (center - center). 70mm bottom bracket lug (Italian). 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. Please see my other auctions!
