I bought this and it is a beautiful frameset, but I don't know much about them and their website doesn't give info on older models. Anyone familiar with it? Thanks!

Here is another pic. BTW, this is a 50th anniversary (1987 NOS) Daccordi SLX frame and fork.

Does it have a head-badge? Other identifying markings?
That's a real "looker"...MrDan

Very nice frame .. did you pick that up on E-bay? What did it cost you? I think some others here would love to pick that one up!
I bought the Daccordi to build up...Frank121

even though it was a 56cm c-c (I ride a 54 c-c and have gone as big as a 55 c-c) but thought I might try a bit bigger bike. I also thought the top tube was 55, which is the far end of my scale (54-55cm with a 10-11cm stem), but is 55.5. The bottom bracket shell even has the size on it...56 on one side and 55.5 on the other, so my at home measurements of 56 c-c and 55.5 top tube are right.

I haven't decided what I will do with it...hard to not keep it with it being so pretty and unique but need to have it fit. Maybe hang it in the living room ;-)

I'm guessing you're around 5'8", you will have no standover but you will be able to have your stem all the way down and it will still be near level with the saddle which you will probably only be able to have about 3" out of the tube. A classic look, and not too long a stretch with the 55.5 top tube because of the zero drop to the bars. I usually ride a 54, but my vintage bike is a 56 c-c with a 55 c-c top tube and it's very comfortable.
beautiful frame. nmLeroy
