Coppi Gavia- Any info on this cheapo frameboneman

I'm looking at one of these for cheap. Al 7005 is all I know. Size is 50 ctc and it's red.

Temporary replacement for my 'bent/compact Corrado pictured below until I figure out what I want for my daily rider. Any information would be appreciated.
Are you replacing the fork on your wrecked...zero85ZEN

...Corrado as well? It might be wise.
Yes, now about the frame...boneman

I have another Pesenti (they were cheap) as well as a Look HCS 2 ready to go as well as a few handlebars to choose from.
LBS had similar frame, but not the same model,geeker

with Columbus Aluthron straight-gauge aluminum tubing, built up with Mirage in 60cm. Looks nice, decent quality (BB welds not pretty) not light but no boat anchor (I'm not a weight weenie), very stiff.

Since you're dealing with a much smaller frame I suggest asking if the Gavia has straight-gauge or butted tubing (7005 could be either). If the former, you *might* (depending on what you want out of the frame) find it slightly too stiff or heavy.
