Basso Gap year?

Well this week I picked up my first quality Italian road bike. I was told by the former owner he believed it to be somewhere from a 84'-88' unfortunately the group set is just a mash up of things ranging from shimano deore, 600, dura-ace to campy.
It sports campy dropouts where I have seen most bassos are basso dropouts. I can't find a serial number on the bike aside from a 2 digit stamping on the ceinelli BB shell. I have not found any other gap's that have the gold/champagne color. This does have chrome fork socks and chrome chain stays.

Does anyone have any insight on the year of this bike?

Unfortunately I'm having some issues uploading photos from my phone I'm going to work on getting to a computer to upload them.

The blue Schwinn dealership sticker places it in the mid 80's later 82-86.

I'm definitely filing away that little piece of information. Thanks

My daughter has an '86 Gap and the derailleur cable routing is beneath the bb shell. Top routing would make this bike older.

For a bike that seems to be very common here in the Midwest I am having trouble sourcing solid information on them. Does anyone have any links to catalogs?
