I'm not sure how old it is, but the drivetrain and other components say mid-80's to me. Anyone else?

Judging from the cutouts in the head lugs, I want to say it's a Strada Speciale, but I'm not 100% sure.

A new, Y2K one would run you 370 pounds w/o shipping. Don't know what they charge to dent the top tube, though. ;-)
