Anyway, since it's still unknown, I'll be painting it. Any ideas on a scheme?
Have any pictures of the fork stripped? I'd love to see the brazing quality/work on the crown.

EDIT: Nevermind, saw your comment saying you didnt take any pics.

Brazing of the fork is the same as on the frame. Fairly clean.

Resuscitating this thread with an aim to increase our collective knowledge of bikes and things.

"JP" on the the seat stay cap stands for Jose Perez who apparently built for Hispano France (although I have not verified this), so Argentinean after all.

Here is an example (still listed here):

Thanks for the thread revival. Itís good to see another frame with the same JP marking on the seat stay cap. I wonder if thereís any other similarities too. The pics arenít close enough to tell.

Unfortunately, the bike in that ad is the only example of a Jose Perez frame I've run across so far. I was looking for some pics of an Argentinean bike for another thread and ran across this ad.
Apart from the seat stay cap stamp, it doesn't look like this frame shares a whole lot with yours. I'd also be interested to some detailed pics, especially to see if there are Pinarello style cutouts. I'd guess yours is earlier than this one (claimed to be from 1991).

Now that I know what JP stands for I'll keep an eye out for these frames.

Thanks!

I do like the feeling of running across a picture of a match and going "Bingo!"
