riverniciato is effectively the Italian for 'repainted'.....a bit like the old Reynolds 'Renovated' decals used after a frame was resprayed...so your frame has been professionally resprayed at sometime.....but anymore more on the tubing.....i thought Nivacrom was later than 1984....EL?...MAX?

sorry i didn't mean to be flippant posting the photo, i realised what i'd done and edited the post this morning to that fact.
i contacted GIos with the frame numer and Marco Gios confirmed it as a 1984 pro frame with a custom paint job.
i didn't ask him about tubing, i'll see what i can find out.
It is light though.

i am the flippant one on most things....so i did not think you were being flippant in any way or shape.....but i did check and the frame would appear to have been resprayed....to what would seem a very high quality of finish.
