Classic & Vintage - Torelli Identity

I recently purchased a Torelli Nitro Express with the following known attributes: 1) The steel is Columbus ELOS; 2) the group is Campy Veloce 9; and 3) the wheel set is Triumph. I also contacted “Chairman Bill” and he conjectured that the frame was built anywhere between 1992 and 2004 (not necessarily “Vintage and Classic”, but I figured that the brain-trust here in this forum could best help me).
I am trying to narrow this window in terms of when the frame was built, any thoughts?
Assuming Veloce 9 speed is original, then it is we can narrow it down quite a bit. A quick look through some literature shows Veloce still being 8 speed in 1996. I think it went 9 speed in 1997, but haven't found anything to confirm that yet. I found a 1997 listing for a Torelli Nitro Express with ELOS, but it lists a Shimano Ultegra group. So maybe no older than 1998?

Ask Chairman Bill about importing Masi's...now THAT could be interesting.
