Interesting about the "boo-boo" you have on the down tube above the shifter bosses. It looks just like the one on my Tommasini and in the exact same place too (groan).
But you surely have a beautiful bike there. The 'Tange' tubing kinda throws me off too, being its a Colnago. Makes me think the bike is one of those asian colnagos I've heard about, made in Japan or Taiwan under strict Colnago specs. Believe it was Colnago's lower cost alternative to offer a bike with their marque, but without the "made in Italy" european expense.
The way I understand it, some of the 'Tange' tubing, like the double-butted chromoly stuff was on par with Columbus.
Still a great bike, tho I would put it late 90's.
