If you could post an image of the serial number its placement and format may indicate the velocipede's actual maker and date.

Thanks for the information so far. So based on the posts it is an Italian bike? I will try to get a pic of the serial numbers. Where would you find them?

Photo format so small and resolution so limited it is difficult to tell very much from the pictures posted thus far. If you post additional ones please try a larger format and better resolution.

From the little which can be seen it appears it might be a product from Japan. As regards dating appears more early to mid 1970's than 1960's.

Typical serial number placements are underside of bottom bracket shell, outside face of rear dropout and side of seat tube.

I concur. It has a four way reflector system which, if OEM, did not become common practice until the 1970s. Also, the shift lever looks like a Shimano product, which would increase the probability of Asian origin.
