Looking for help identifying early 80's Italian track bike

I recently bought this unmarked track bike from the original owner and I'm wondering if I could get some help figuring out what it is. She indicated it's Italian, but the head badge is missing. Pretty sure it's from the early 80's.

Here's what I can tell you:
  • bike fully built weighs 23lbs.
  • 56cm steel frame, no badge (looks like one broke off), serial number 8F04059 marked on lug above fork, no stickers, no brazed cable guides or water bottle mounts. Gold accents at lugs.
  • front hub reads sunshine professional japan
  • sugino super maxi 165mm crank marked c-1 forged Japan
  • Ambrosio Extra Elite wheels 700c
  • Sugino 48t Japan chainring
  • 18t shimano SS freewheel
  • Brooks professional select saddle
  • Nitto Pearl 10 stem
  • Nitto Tokyo drop bars
  • 68mm bottom bracket. Unsure of threading.
  • Laprade f-84 fluted seat post 26.6mm
  • Tange Cro-Mo chrome fork
  • Modolo Speedy Calipers

I'm new here, so I can't post URLs. Pics at [tinyurl dot com/80strackbike]. LMK if the link doesn't work.
Thanks for your help!
