Francesco Moser road bike identification problem

Hi,

i just brought F. Moser road bike for 50 eur on the flea market...just like that one on the pic. It's recolored so i couldnt identify it. It has heart and birds on the tubes so i realized its probablly Mosers, but no badge.. The crankset, brakes modolo corsa and pedals are the same as on this one on in the picture...


Mine has chrome fork and chainstays.... Any idea of the range will be appreciated?

Thank you in advance!http://www.okazii.ro/catalog/5179063...r.html#galerie

What range are your talking about? Value? Quality? Vintage?

I believe he means the range of models offered by F. Moser...and unfortunately there's not much in the way of catalog scans to determine specific models. Plus I have no idea what "heart and birds" you might find on the tubes, unless you mean a Columbus dove stamp and the heart-shape cutout in lugs. If so, they are so common to so many makes I wouldn't take it to mean "Moser".

Did a bit of research: the only catalog I find is on the venerable Bulgier site:
http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/moser/
and based on this, the pic you posted looks like the cheaper "Sprint" model which is built of Falck tubing and has chrome only on the forkcrown.
Nearly every model above that one has at least some additional chrome (like on the drive chainstay) and most have the Moser logo engraved in the stay-caps.
If yours has an (original) all-chrome fork, and it's from about the era of those in the catalog, I think it should have that "Moser" engraved logo on it, somewhere, or it's not a Moser.

It has bird shaped on the chrome fork and heart cutout on the down tube close to head tube. It has chrome chainstays too. Its 60 size. Modolo brakes and the same crankset as on pic above.
