So did anyone pic this frame up and what size it is? Says 23 so suggestive of 58.5cm.

IIRC, Windsor Pros of that era had that drill pattern - the 8 holes align at the 3 - 9 position with the center hole while Cinellis model SC Brugelmann had 7 holes and rotated so none lines up at 3-9. Superficially they look similar and some sellers fool novices into thinking these Mexican built frames are Cinellis.

From Velo Retro:
1972-76
Mod. S.C. Leggerissimo made to order for Radsport Brugelmann in Frankfurt; yellow with red head tube and seven holes (six holes arranged in circle with seventh hole in center) in bottom of BB shell.
