1984-85 Guerciotti (SLX, TSI import)

hello all,
i'm looking to build out a blue Guerciotti. I'm guessing it's from 1984-85: looking down the tubes from the BB, it appears to be SLX from the ruffles. Two water bottle mounts, braze-on FD, stamped Guerciotti in caps w/ star cutout on BB. Campy dropouts, Columbus forks. There are no decals as it was powder coated by previous owner.
I think I want to build it out w/ Campy NR, but would like to know if Ten Speed Imports "ordered" italian threaded BBs, it measures out to 70mm. My guess is that it does, but want to make sure since I don't want to work backwards w/ Campy...
Thanks!
Christian

Do you have an English BB laying around? Try one of the cups and see if it fits, odds are it is an Italian so the English cup will just be too small

My 84GLX SLX had Italian bb threads as well.

It's a 53cm...it was powdercoated in blue, so I got some decals for it, definitely an SLX frame. I have an 84 Guerciotti (SL) w/ Campy Triomphe as well.
I didn't really set out to embark on a building project, but the frame/fork was too good to pass up...Are you looking for a similar frame?
