1980's Daccordi Turbo tubing info ?



I'm just wondering if anyone has any info on this exact model of the turbo (year/tubing/stock components). I have been searching around to try and find the kind of tubing that this is. I haven't been able to conclude that is is one thing for sure, some seem to think it's columbus sl but the frames they reference were quite different. Also is there any way to tell by inspecting/measuring/weighing the bike to know for sure what kind of tubing it is ?

seen this catalog/pricelist on Bulgier's site? It's the only info I'm aware of, and no mention of a "Turbo" model...

According to this, the frames were made with Columbus Cromor, SL, SLX or Oria ML25.
Based on the amount of chrome on your, I'd say SL or SLX and you should be able to tell if SLX by looking at the tubing butts in the BB shell for rifling.

Thanks so much thats more than I could find! So if there is rifling in the bb then its slx ? And are there any big indicators to tell if is chromor vs sl/slx ?

Nice looking frame. I have a Daccordi that is Oria and it has lots of Oria stickers on the fork and less chrome than yours. Sorry, I'm no help.

The bike is "supposed to weigh in at just over 6 pounds. I dunno if this helps but someone mentions that there would be rifling in the bottom bracket for SLX ??? maybe this pic helps

Yes, it would hurt the value.

rifling should be inside the seat tube in the area where it connects to th bb if it's slx.

And in the event there isnt rifling, is there any way to tell between chromor and sl ?

Well, an SL should have a 27.2 seat post. The size should be stamped on the seat post itself...

And I vote, don't repaint. That paint still has a lot of life left in it IMHO. Plus, it is a lot of work...

The seatpost is indeed 27.2 so im assuming its sl. The only reason I wanted to repaint it was because I have collected a c record groupset and I wanted it to look snazzy with all my campy stuff. That being said in it's current codition what do you guys think the frame and fork are worth ? And if I repainted what would be the approximate loss in value ?

I really like my 2 SL framed Italian bikes. They are very light, racy, and quick handling bikes that always urge me to go quicker. They perform exactly like one would expect from an Italian manufacturer.

I think this frame is going to look great without a paint job. I say build her up and ride her, and you'll quickly forget about the imperfections in the paint, which really, seem pretty insignificant to me. Touch it up, polish it, buff it and be done with her. Unless you look at her closely, she's going to look great. Remember, a good paint job can cost you up to $400-500, and then there are the decals, and it quickly adds up to an amount you can never recoup. And that first scratch would just kill you!

I cannot speak to its worth, but I wouldn't repaint it. And I'm a guy who'll repaint just about anything. I'd leave that as is and build it up with the group. It will look snazzy that way! Maybe get a Columbus decal from Velocals to cover where the old one was.

Yes, I missed that detail: looks like you do have the reinforced BB and (at least for that year's spec) the SLX frames had an embossed top tube, which yours doesn't have.
Also, the remnant of the decal sure looks like a standard blue border SL/SP decal, so I'd bet that's the tubing used...the Cromor frames seem to have less to no chrome and they'd weigh more than an SL, but I think all those tubesets took a 27.2 seatpost, Cromor included, so no clue there.
I also vote for "no repaint" at least for now...
