Help me identify this frame

Comrades;

I basically rescued this frame from a dumpster. I'm in the process of stripping it of blue and black spray paint. Some of the pics were taken before and some after the stripping.

The frame is steel. It has Campagnolo dropouts on the front forks. The serial number on the bottom bracket is 434386 J48.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Sprayman

Mystery Dumpster Rescue I.D.

Here are the latest, and better pics. The paint is all stripped off of the steel frame. I thought it was looking like a Motobecane, but the crown looks different. The dropouts on the front fork are Campagnolo.

Thanks for any information you can give me. I'm curious to see what this frame is.

Good lug work nice size and geometry. Appears to be a very well built frame and worth saving and restoring. Nice dumbster find I wish I could find a decent road bike in the dumbster. All I ever seem to find in C&V bike are mountain bikes and cheaper 3 speeds.
