Okay, I've asked this before, but I'll try again. Has anyone on the list ever heard of a Chiappini bike? I recently purchased one on Ebay and am starting to restore it. The bike has chrome headlugs and came with an old Record rear derailleur (not sure if this was original), a Campy Gran Sport front derailleur, Campy shift levers, Campy high flange hubs, Campy dropouts, Olympia cottered crank, and Universal 61 brakes. The headbadge and decals are missing, so I don't know what the frame material is. The stem only says "made in Italy". Any info would be greatly appreciated. This one earned 36 bids.

And, another question on asthetics. I plan to replicate the frame decals with inkjet decal paper (these are easily removed), but I would like to have something on the frame. Is this wrong, or should I just leave the frame bare?
