Italian frame - surely there's only one answer: Super Record. The market for early 80s stuff hasn't quite gone as ballistic as the late 80s C-Record, so perfectly feasible to pick-up parts for reasonable prices and there's still enough to go round - as long as you steer clear of mint/boxed stuff. Besides, a bit of polishing never did anyone any harm.

Sounds like you are intending a period correct build - that would make a nice thread showing how you progress finding various parts and the build. Do you have any parts you intend to use, already?
How about a few pictures of the frame to whet our appetite?

Super/Nuovo record is the obvious choice but it's a bit of a jungle.

Early Look pedals would be OK.
Cinelli needs to be "winged" logo.
Saddles like Rolls, Regal, Turbo,Concor etc are all OK.
Mavic still on the small red old-style labels.
Super Record seatpost is later one-bolt type.
I think 84 Record brakes have italic engraving, not "block" lettering.
Cranks should be non-fluted type.
Mechs are the "black detailed" ones.

the 90's chorus brakes i took of my Dave Marsh , don't seem to fit, allen bolt too big for the hole drilled, i don't want to re drill so what brakes should i be looking for?
I'm not so fussy about the period stuff, but would like a bike to be lightish and be able to switch to down tube shifters if i get the eroika sorted... am i asking too much?

Nice. I would think it somewhat later than 1984 however. The frame sure shows resemblance with a Concorde, but that is no coincidence.
