Sry I meant st and dt. They're ovalized and flattened medially with normal diameters at the ends, so takes a normal seatpost. I know there is also the Shimano Aero tubing, which I get mixed up sometimes. The tt and ht appear to be SL, or maybe it's all SL that's been pressed? That;s about the extent of what I know.

More likely ovalised SL, as seen before on some Rossin, Tommasini and Faggin (to name a few) of the same age (first half of the 80s).
Do you know how it was painted before? Planning to put some decals on?

Yea figured it might be.Cheers on that. Put up some oldies. The motley paint was kinda crap. I was looking at decals..dunno.. I'll definitely get around to filling in pantos and striping the lugs.

Can't say anything about ht (not sure it was different from other tubing), but the seat tube can't be Air as there is a normal seatpost sticked in it :)
