Nice to read a thread started by you. The look of the black front end hardware is interesting. I would be tempted to go nuovo record or super record headset and trade out or strip the anodizing from the stem and go bright. The top tube on these are short, the seat tube angles for most sizes are steep, you might well need a longer stem anyway and possibly #66 bend bars too to be comfortable.
I have three Gios, two my size. There certainly was an evolution of paired major frame dimensions over time. When I was a young man I felt they were "short", 30 years later the effects of gravity make that short top tube pretty good.
