Benotto without a cut out on bottom bracket?

Everyone knows about the heart shaped cut out on a Benotto BB, but what about when a model doesn't have one? Trying to identify year and model of this bike.

I can't tell you the model or year, but I can tell you that mrs non-fixie's Benotto 500 Lady doesn't have a cut-out either.

I don't know if this will do you any good, but on just never knows.

one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

Thank you seesbelize! Had not seen this site. It didn't answer my question, but it was great information. I have the 1987 catalog from my Modello 850 purchase; should donate some scans to the site.

The OPs has GPM (Gipiemme) dropouts, though they are stamped with "Benotto". Usually this indicates a lower-than-top-model frame, but not always. BB shell might also be seamed, but hard to tell with that small-size pic.
