Put some more expensive tires on it and you'll really maximize its sportiness.
Actually the brother story was just a pretend story as my excuse to desecrate a vintage collectible. I actually bought this local on Craig’s a year ago. I wanted to experience some Italian riding.The mudguards are original. I have new pasela 28s on it as pictured and to me they feel very nice.

Earlier discussion
Frejus Torino Tour de France

As recommended, I have saved all the parts. I guess to me it is better to have a vintage frame I can ride and experience than having a wall hanger. As discussed, this is mid level so not really so valuable anyhow. The wide ratio 5 speed and older rear derailleur and steel chainrigs give enough nostalgia. The driveline harkens back to the 70s rather than the 50s which is just fine as I want to ride it, not fight it.
