Find the matching HeadBadge

Please help me identify this bike. Decals are missing (except for the winner's stripes you see in the background on the seat tube),
and the outline of the HeadBadge.

BM is stamped into the top lug. 68mm BB shell, Campagnolo dropouts. Lugs are standard straight out of the 70s Ishiwata catalogue.

Look at these countries first: IT, NL, BE, DE... the bike comes from Europe.

Many manufacturers deviated from their usual Columbus or Reynolds tubing for some models, so don't let the Ishiwata limit your thinking.
(and I don't think it would be Japanese, because when paying extra for high-end dropouts, national pride would probably have them favours Shimano D-A dropouts rather than Campagnolo).



I would love to find out what this bike is. It is very well made. I'd like to give it a paintjob and decals it deserves.

Should you know someone who may know, please flag it to them.
