    Welcome to Bike Forums! I'm moving this to C and V because all of the people in here would know a lot about it.

    Some thoughts on info that will help amswer your questions:

    With the photos, get full drive-side and full non-drive-side shots, a good shot of the serial number, and as many good shots of the frame details as you can, things like the seat cluster lug, the bottom bracket, the other lugs. Also, photos of the various decals can be very helpful.

    Another good thing to check is the distance between the rear dropouts. 120mm = 5 speed cluster (and some 6 speeds), 126mm = 6 or 7 speed, 130mm = 8+. Knowing that can give a good start on date ranges, as somebody here can give you a pretty good date when these spreads were phasing in or out. The date on the Campy cranks is a hint, but since components can be swapped out any time it is not definitive.

    In any event, We'd love to see the photos. 753 frames are cool, pretty much by definition.
