will be fun to seek one right frame, i know.
Don't worry, you'll find one soon. You see, in 1984 Lotus was proud to introduce a set of affordable Campagnolo equipped bikes made in Japan with Columbus tubing. Today it's common for troglodytes to take these beautiful, classic, and rare Lotus bikes and strip them for their valuable Campagnolo components. I've seen it happen dozens of times.

So you'll be able to find a frame eventually, and a rare and special Lotus will be lost forever. Ignorance and greed fuels the bicycle hobby.
