<< Wondering if anyone can tell anything about this frame from a few detail shots. It's been repainted, I'm trying to figure out if it is a GIOS and/or what year it might be. I can likely get more pics if you'd like to see them.

IMO, definitely a Gios (not just from fork crown but also seat stay top eyes & BB). And likely one from the mid 1970s, which were the very best of Gios. Very thin nicely shaped lugs, a lot of "filing up." That would be worth "saving" by repainting properly and decaling.
