Seems to be a high quality Italian-made frame, acquired via CL a while ago. I just built it up with mainly SunTour Superbe Pro parts. Rides nicely! The frame weighs exactly what an Eisentraut of the same size I had weighed. Columbus stickers, Italian BB, "Revolution" pantographed on seat stays, original paint (I applied the red star stickers!)

I've never heard of them before this, but a quick search indicates Revolution is the house brand for Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Op. Based on the style of Columbus decal, this particular sample is no older than 1988.

I've sent them an e-mail to see if they owned this name back in '88.

Edinburgh Bicyce Co-op answered my query with a negative. . . They've only been using the "Revolution" name since 2003. Nice of them to answer!
