My '89 Bottecchia Equipe SLX (SPX) has a fully chromed rear end. The seat stay and chain stay are both slightly flattened on the drive side. They are not flattened as much as yours though.

Do like what i did. Put 7/8 speed chain rings on the 10 speed crank. The spider width is the same. The 9/10 speed chain rings have the teeth offset towards the center.

I would just bite the bullet and pay for the 109.5. Ultegras are on ebay for $90 and Dura Ace is $110 on ebay and Unversal Cycles. It's worth it because these BBs usually last.
