Looking to restore a Daccordi Designer

Hi All
Inherited a "Daccordi Designer" from my late father-in-law. Not sure of the bike details as it has been in the garage for the last 15 years not being used. Brought it out a few weeks ago to start riding again and was blown away by the bike. It is so smooth and quiet that riders on $10,000 bikes were commenting on it.
I'm now really keen to find out a bit more about the bike and would like to restore it (not much needed other than chrome and paint work) and source the decals.

I have added a pic of the Daccordi restored by Steven Cascalheira of New Zealand. I think it is the same bike and is certainly the motivation for my restore. I just need to know where to go and who to speak to. I don't mind spending a bit on the restoration.

Regards
Hugh

Whoa. The rise on that stem looks scary.

Good luck with the restoration project.

Pics of Daccordi Designer

I have added a few pics of the bike which is approximately 21 - 23 years old. I'm hoping someone knows a bit about the bike; year, model and any other relevant info. I'm hoping to restore but honestly don't have a clue where to start. Are the components on this bike just randomly chosen or are those the ones that were used on all bikes of this model?
