I'd appreciate sme help.

I have what I think is a very early Benotto 2500 frame and forks. I cant post pictures as it is currently with someone for a quote to restore.

The paint work is knocked around and the decals are v.tired but the frame and forks are absolutely sound.

It is stamped with the number 844 under the bottom bracket.

It is a 60cm frame. It has chrome forks and lugs, and has the silver edged frame decals recording the world titles.

The columbus sticker is ancient with the poorly drawn bird.

I'm really trying to decide whether to restore it, or what the value is as it stands. I have a number of projects to work on and normally like things from the 80's/v.early 90's.

One other interesting point is that it has a US armed forces sticket on the headstock, dating from 71. Looks like it may have been shipped or ridden by an american serviceman.

Any help gratefully accepted.
