Fondriest MegaChrome

I was directed over here from the road cycling forum-
I just got this frame- a Fondriest

Does anyone have any info?

its chromoly- or "cromolly" as it says on the sticker- megachrome dedacciai tubing

on the BB it says 57RUS and 10748

Someone said it was a Fondriest Megachrome- I have no idea
Thanks!

i would agree with that guess... the megachromes usually had a decal saying so. it would be that tubing sticker above the fondriest logo on the seat tube (which is most likely dedacchai)
