Am I crazy? Those lugs look, generously, very pedestrian, if not chunky and unappealing.

No, I don't vote "Gitane"...the stay caps look wrong and I can't ID those drop-outs but they might be Japanese...certainly don't look either Simplex or Campy 1010. Might have had 27" wheels as the front clearance looks enormous...those 600 calipers are stretched to the limit. What headbadge would mount with a side-hole like that? Helluva nice deal for 50 euros!

I suspect that the black hubs are Japanese: maybe Dura Ace...and you guys are joking about the Nervex Pro lugs (whale-tail version), right?
I have a feeling it's Belgian or Dutch...just a feeling...
Too bad about my mistaking the starting bid for a sale price, but still...could be a good deal since not many Finns are going to recognize what it is either, right?

it will most likey sell for under 200- my guess is around 150€
but it is a bit of a collection of parts and does not seem to be a whole. if you know what i mean

Im after this one for the wifey...

it is a real pig in the bag- but enough details to tell me it is a quality frame.

I agree: it's a collection but some of those parts might be original...that black one could be a great deal (underneath the 'custom paint'), it certainly has some earmarks...best of luck!
