Bump so I can ask a question. Is the cutout in the bottom bracket the give-away that it is Mondonico-built? Is there any other way to tell?

100% not a challenge, just me hoping to learn something. Thanks.

It seems that the entire bottom bracket treatment is Mondonico style. Similar if not the same bridge, cutout, and pantograph style as some of the others I have seen. The time period of the build also seems to match.

Just a guess, no expertise here...

Same - not an expert, but going off of what has been passed on from the person who sold me the bike and interwebs research. The seat tube/top tube cluster is also in line with Mondonico.
Everything that I can find lines up. Mondonico made these for Bob (owner of Torelli) during the 90ís and early 2000ís.

The frame has been treated with a gray ďframesaverĒ type product.
I wanted this frame to work, but the TT was too long for me.
According to the previous owner, it was ridden infrequently by him (also a fit issue), and the original owner (who he bought it from) kept it as a wall hanger for the most part.

It is a gorgeous frame. Too bad it is not the right fit for me.
I never rode the bike - I did my measurements, considered a shorter stem, but ultimately stripped the Record 9 speed components and put them on a 58cm Merckx with a 57cm top tube.

EL-OS is my favorite tubing, so it pains me to part with the frame. It will make someone very happy
