Are the white cutouts correct or is this a repaint?? The white borders on the Fleur de Lis and the Serpent on the head tube stickers would seem to indicate that this is at least a 73, no?

That's a very cool bike, and those Dugasts as well as the neat Wolber covers
are very desirable to boot! I'm curious about how the bike was dated to '72
if anyone has some insight to offer.
One of my eclectic collecting "credos" is to keep no more than one bike each
of road and track for any particular marque so unless I just can't help
myself at the end of the auction, this bike will go to another lucky
collector/rider. In fact, I sold off a Carlsbad-Masi Pista last year because
it was redundant to my Reg Harris Masi. It was a hard thing to do but it
helps to keep the size of the stable manageable.

PS: For fans of track bikes out there, I am currently building up a 50's (ie
Coppi era) Bianchi Pista and some photos of the bike can be viewed here:
