Basso Frame Info?
 
I'm looking at buying a Basso Frame 1990's? No sticker on Tube but I assume it's Columbus. Paint is Red /White/Blue Scheme and the Chromed forks say OMNI OE-07 on it. Anyone have any info on what this is and what the value might be (in fair condition)?

Um, photos? A bit out of our time frame here, but photos may get you some useful information anyway.

Nice bike.
Fork might not be original (the Bassos I saw had a pantographed "B" on the crown). This fork looks tight! Tubing should be Columbus (if seatpost is 27.2mm look for helicoidal splines in the tubes joining the BB to check if it's SLX). 1st digit in the serial number (on BB shell) should indicate year of manufacture. Basso were (and still are) a reputable bike manufacturer so in good condition you might pay 200$ for this frame.

Looks like a Basso Gap, same as mine except mine is all blue, rear brake cable runs along channel on top tube Columbus SL tube, set hope this helps.

looks like a late-80's bike. definitely not the original fork, and probably not a 'gap' (all of which had internally routed rear brake cables i believe). very similar to one that passed through my hands recently...seat cluster, tri-color paint, decal font, single chrome stay.

see the photos here:
basso

mine was a 'tretubi', which denotes an SL main triangle and builder's choice stays and fork. if you don't find the previously mentioned 'helicoil splines' (aka: 'rifling', like in a gun barrel) yours may very well be this.

The Gap used traditional brakes tunnels. The Lotto and Ascot had the internally routed rear brake cable. Given that the fork is non-original and there is no tubing decal, there is no way to tell for sure if it tre-tubi or not. However, the presence of what appears to be a braze-on for the front derailleur suggests it is a Gap.

I bought it without stickers and repainted it as the painting was not good. So I don't know which model is it. Coral and champion seems to look like it.

This might be a record for longest zombie reincarnation (8 and a half years) with the least good reason for doing so.

Yup.

Still, I will assume there was a reason. I'm an opportunity that way.
