Neglected Benotto

Oh, boy, this one is ugly. Wouldn't have stopped to look at the ad, but the DT shifters looked interesting. Looks like they are Simplex retrofriction. Crank seems to be Spidel branded Stronglight 107 so the shifters may be Spidel branded as well. Pedals appear to be Spidel/Maillard 700 platform pedals and the FD appears to be a Simplex SJ A102, or similar. Guessing Mavic rims. Brakes look like some sort of lower tier Campagnolo. Seen them before, but can't remember Victory, Athena, Triumph? Maybe not original. Looks like the fork was nice, a long time ago and it looks to be a decently built frame. Probably early 80s. Boy, that fork sure looks like toast. Maybe toast with Swiss cheese. Curious what the model might have been. Probably Mexican rather than Italian, but with Spidel components? Here are the wonderful pics from the ad. Asking price is $100. Apparently, rust is on sale.:
