Help needed: Anyone knows who built this frame?

Hi,

I have this frame for years but unfortunately it has no decals so I cant figure out who made it. I'm planing to enter a vintage bike race with it and I have to know who and when it was built. Can anyone help me?

The pantos on the fork crown and seat stay lugs seem to be similar to the Columbus tubing logo. But, I'm unaware if Columbus made their own frames. It appears to be nicely brazed. If was to have to come up with a make and year, I'd say it was a Columbus from the mid-80's.

Palo Alto and Biemmezeta (BMZ) which built some frame for Palo Alto comes up if you search for 'Columbus dove panto frame', but Columbus made frame parts, so it could potentially be anything. You might try asking this question in the main C&V forum as it gets more readers.

That paint scheme looks like Koga Miyata to me.
