Nice Nervex lugs paired with stamped dropouts is really strange to me. I'm guessing this frame is older, maybe 1960s? Sorry I have no real idea.

Know what the seatpost diameter is? That might help a bit.

I've seen that style of seat stay cap on a boom era Cilo that I almost bought, but it definitely had Swiss threading.

That number on Nervex BB shells describes the angles, tubing diameters (bores), and chainstay spacing. It isn't a serial number. Look for the serial number elswhere on the frame.

Seat post is bigger than 25.4 ( i dont know the excite number cuz the frame is in another city) .
serial number is 25376.
Yes.There was fisrt genaration campagnolo record
rear derailleur on the frame so it means the frame belongs 1960's.
There was also TA 3 pin specialties crank set on the frame.The bb threading is 35mm andshell width is 68mm .Lockring is on the left side so it means it has swiss threading.U are right T-MAR.

I have a frame that is similar, in that it has really nice Nervex Legere lugs, but everything else on it is crap. Unfortunately I haven't been able to figure out what it is. Mine had lower end Suntour components from 1972 on it.

With the Nervex lugs and that toothed headset I'm guessing something French?

All lockrings are located on the left side and are right hand threaded, so it does not prove anything. You need to test the fixed cup and determine if it is left hand or right hand threaded. This will tell you if it is French or Swiss threaded. However, if it is Stronglight cup, I can also tell from a good photo.

Nervex plus Simplex style strait dropouts my best guess is early 60's French. I would guess Moto or Gitane.

Have you established that the tubing is metric rather than imperial (26.0 diameter top tube instead of 25.4; 28mm down tube and seat tube instead of 28.6)?
