Need help identifying and dated a Sancineto frame

I'm still in disbelief that this beauty was donated to the local bike co-op where I volunteer yesterday. My shop manager texted me the picture as soon as it arrived. Information seems scarce on Sancinetos, so any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Does the serial number follow trend in indicating the year it was manufactured (1996)? Also, any idea what the original spec may have been on the parts? Right now, everything left on there seems to be Campagnolo Chorus. (Okay, it's just the cranks.) Thanks as always for your help!

My guess is that the crank set if original. If so or even if not, send a picture of the information etched or panto-graphed into the back side of each crank arm. The information there just might help with defining the vintage. As for model - no idea = sorry.

Yes, on the later years of Sancineto bicycles the frame number corresponds with the year of manufacture. When that thresh-hold is crossed though is currently unclear. I haven't put much time into this page recently but you might some helpful info here.

Your contributions are welcome however! Cheers!

I'll get the pics as soon as I can, though it may have to be later this week.

That's amazing, looks like it could be yet another brand that got "Varnish by Dosenno Carlo" or paint by Carlo Dosenno as we'd say...or somebody very much in his style.
What are the plans? Is it yours? Does it fit?

The shop manager and I both ride the same size: 56cm - which it is. So, he proposed arm wresting for it; I proposed rock, paper, scissors. In the end, it may come down to dueling pistols.

If I do end up with it, I was figuring a more modern 11-spd build with either Campagnolo Record or Chorus depending on what the budget allows. Likely the latter. Then you better believe that thing will be with me on most of my group club rides this next summer.

As an interesting aside, looks to be the same frame that someone was offering for trade on paceline forums 2 years ago (can't post links, but you can find it by searching " WTT - Sancineto - Columbus Max")

Wonder what happened?

Son of a gun. Given his location, I would say that's the exact frame. Guess he just never traded it. Matt1986, thank you so much for the tip.

Perform a cursory build and ride before the duel. Based on your other bicycles, you may find this too rigid and harsh for your liking.
