This is an original colour scheme - it's just called Bazooka Neon. There were three:
- lets say "original" orange mettalic one - Bazooka Team
- this one - Bazooka Neon
- whole black - Bazooka Nero

No, although Sintesi was and now also is known of their very colourful bike paintjobs.

First year that Bazooka ( think was 1996) appeared was only one -> the orange one with Bomber Z1 and Formula's.

Next year there were three models (the frame I think was the same):
- highest model - Bazooka Team - orange mettalic one with triple clamp Bomber Mr.T/Formula's/Sintesi crankset
- mid-level - Bazooka Neon - this one with triple clamp Bomber Jr.T/Formula's
- entry level - Bazooka Nero - whole black with Bomber z1/mechanical Formula MD1

It's up to you if you want it to repaint. I would leave it as is and give her proper built with time-period parts.

Cheers
