The leading 0 looks like a backwards C, actually. I assume it's a zero.

The only ELOS frames I have seen have been celeste. I've not seen a blue one.
Where is this? Are you sure it is EL OS and not just EL? Is it blue blue or that bluish Nuovo Celeste?

There was a seperate and very nice '93 Reparto Corse catalog that shows a EL frame in blue with silver decals, but most others are nuovo Celeste or red.
