Colnago track bike ID help (please)

hey,

I have this Colnago track frame that I would like to build up period correct, but I don't really know from when it originates...

how do I place it?

It is supposed to be a custiom frame for tom boonen, originally in team colors, but repainted since...

I suppose it doesn't have the original decals, an I can't find anything on the frame apartz from the # 972 or #927 on the BB.

the lugs on the frame look like either one of these two:

1. http://velospace.org/node/158

2. http://velospace.org/node/475

but I am really not sure...

What can I do?

here some pics of the bike itself:

the first 2 pics are from the selling thread and everything else is from me....

here are some pics of seat cluster and BB shell....

looks like it had already seen a repaint, so nothing gained, nothing lost. Nice color. Based solely on the bottom bracket cutout (rounded base on the club) it looks to be a mid to late 70's bike. Track bikes are usually considerably different than the standard road release, so I'm not sure that the features compare. It is big enough to have been Boonen's bike, but I think that it would be pretty old by the time he got on the track...
