    I'd vote for Peugeot PX-10: the Nervex lugs and BB shell, Simplex forged DOs and those stay caps...does it have a fork?

    Torpado (AKA Torresini) didn't make those dropouts, just engraved their brandname. The ones on your blue frame are almost certainly Gipiemme (GPM) and since you say the fork has Campagnolo forkends,...
