Searching for info on my 80s LO-PRO TT

I am searching for info on my bike/build. I THINK, not positive, its a Guerciotti TT from the 80s. It didnt come with the original fork. The rear brake cable with housing goes thru the top tube. The brazed on down tube shifters are Campagnolo Victory with the cables going thru the frame also. The rear dropouts are stamped Columbus. The stem is a quill 3T. The headset is a 105. The cranks Shimano FC-1050 and chain rings are Shimano also.
Someone had stolen the bike and stripped the campy parts off then painted it a rattle can Lime Green and added an entire roll of silver duct tape to make grips and accent stripes. I found the rolling bike abandoned looking like the parts I havent listed came out of a bike store dumpster.
Any info or lead to discovery of what exactly the bike is would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Regards Barry

If you think it was stolen, call the local PD with the best description that you have. Or check online on stolen bike registries.

"Funny Bike".

Keep in mind that the fork in front will likely be for either a 24" road wheel, or a 650c road wheel. And then it will have a larger 700c road wheel in the back.

5-speed might not be unexpected, although it does appear as if there is a front derailleur hanger. I've got a curved seat tube on my funny bike, and the front derailleur is in the wrong place

Anyway, it looks like a fun (or funny) project.

Wow! Good on you for bringing this beautiful bike back to life!

I (sadly) agree that the bike is likely stolen. But, after some basic due diligence, youíll likely have yourself a free and super bada** frame.

I know nothing about the bike other than itís awesome and I hope you build it back to life. Cheers!

Looks like a quality build whatever it is. The stem appears to be beyond the minimum insertion line. You might want to check that.

Edit: Curious as to why you think it might be a Guerciotti. A quick search didn't yield any Guerciotti TT bikes that had curved seat stays like that one. Doesn't mean they didn't have that, just didn't find any.

I can't tell where the minimum insertion line is. However, clearly someone didn't want to ride that bike hunched over like it was intended.

I'd add a much shorter stem.
