Hey all,

I've taken on a quixotic quest this summer -- I'm trying to resurrect an early 1980s Guerciotti Pista in incredibly rough shape into something that looks like Ten Speed Drive had just painted it. I found the frame with a local here who was talking about junking it -- the paint is largely shot, it's partially covered with electrical tape, and it's had a front-end crash that's tweaked the top and down tubes -- fortunately, the fork seems straight still, and it tracks rather well.

The star cutouts in the lugs and BB shell, chrome chainstays and fork and nicely tapered seatstays with Paolo Guerciotti's pantographed signature spoke to me, so I decided to take it in and see what could be done.

My question is this. First, does anyone have a list of the Imron paint codes that TSDI used on Guerciottis during the 1980s? I'd like to find something acceptably original. Second, does anyone out there happen to have an original TSDI decal that could be used during a respray? It's got one on it now, so I thought I'd stick with it.
