I agree with Lou, I don't know about the provenance however the frame looks to be period correct to me. The seller states that there is a 1972 build date, stamped onto the steerer - a photo would have been good. Were there Ferretti Team replicas made back in 1972? What ever the case it looks to be a very nice bike.
