no idea on the model, Oria tubing - has Moser's record on the decals.

Not particularly light but will make a great resto, and I love that colour too.

Probably Oria equivalent of Columbus Aelle,going by the gear on it.... - so basically better quality Hi-tensile steel - but not cro mo.

Seatpost diameter is a good indicator of tubing quality.

The parts that are on it are a mishmash of replaced bits, not a good guide, the only original bit is the Moser headset, this looks like a shed rebuild.

The drop-outs are 'moser'

Oria Tubi is the only reference I can find - a quick google shows this to be a good leg up from 'hi-ten' steel....
