Gios Torino, what year??

Hey guys, I have a Gios Torino that was repainted, redecaled, has new, but still the right age nuovo record derails. It has shimano brk levers and tiagra calipers. Campy fricrion shifters. Exage cranks, shimano hubs with nice sunrims steel rims, and maxxis tires. Campy stem, and ritchey handlebars. Only thing is that i can't figure out what year it is! I suspect it's an 80's.. But all this internet searching is confusing so I really can't fidure it out.. All the cables are internal, no cable runs on the outside of the bike, the shifer cables run into the frame from the downtube frictions. And the r brake cable goes into the frame upfront and comes out at the back.
i tried adding these pics... But i dont know if it worked. Anything you could tell me would be awesome

Gios+
80's
Repaint-
Campagnolo+
Japanese stuff-
clinchers-
large frame size-
appears to be missing some graphics,-
Missing dropout screws, wheel all the way back when it does not need to be...missing dropout adjusters or snapped off, -, -, -

At least $500. US beyond that will depend on the dropouts and the potential buyer's attitude toward the alternative component choices.
Personally, I don't think Gios bikes are great for bigger guys, (above 57 or 58 cm ctt) the top tubes are just often too short.

Ok, I was just wondering if it is an actual gios, or a knock off. But here are the pics anyway

You posted in the valuation forum. Often, if people get a low value for a bike they consider to be worth much more, they can get angry unless there is an explanation. He didn't do this to piss you off, just to help show you why he came up with that value. Don't be so touchy.

OK, I don't particularly want to disillusion anyone, and I am way way far from an expert, but I have to ask: "What in the world made you think this bike was a Gios?"
it might well be, but the key bits (fork crown and BB) don't show the typical GT cutouts.
