I have a Billato Masi Gran Corsa, the tubing decal says Columbus Masi, any idea what kind of tubing it is? I think the Gran Corsa was one step above the Nuova Strada, or was it the other way around.

Thinking that the order in the 80' was:

Nuova Strada Gran Corsa Gran Criterium and the 3V were kind of equivalent but different at the top end of the range.
