This won't help entirely, but I'll tell you what I'm using on my Peugeot, with a Fiamme "Montreal" stem...

Cinelli 26.4mm diameter bars; no cable grooves whatsoever Left side: Star logo, and the inscription "Giro D'Iatalia" Right Side: Cinelli inscription, the first letter is the "flying C" style. Below the inscription is the style/size (i.e. 64-40)

I just realized that I must have purchased these bars after 1984, although I don't know how long they were on display in the shop...
