For a hundred dollars, it would already be in my stable! Move quickly if you don't want to miss the opportunity of getting it.

Looks like the brake calipers are Modolo Race and handles Modolo QT_EXE, rear wheel campagnolo. Front logo on fork.

It looks like the head badge says, high tension tubing. The traditonal fork crown is at odds with the oversize tubeset and lugless construction. I also see mixed components including late 1980s Shimano pedals, low end Modolo brakes and what appear to be SunTour low end resin shift levers. This is very much a frankenbike and possibly repainted, with generic decals added. I strongly suspect the Coppi fork does not match the frame.

+1
Fork is lugged, whereas the frame is not.

I don't see a lot special here and would want more better pics. I do agree the fork may not belong to frame.

Doesn't look like a Fiorelli or Masciaghi built Coppi. Looks Taiwanese to me, 90s-ish. Fiorelli stopped building with Coppi in what, the 80s? Calling @juvela maybe he'll know.

Hopefully the OP knows who Fausto Coppi was.
