Near verticle dropouts would put that in the late '80s? Any marks under the BB?

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

Cons: Seat post diameter suggests a lesser-grade tubing, and the fact that by some miracle only the tubing sticker(s) survived on a paint job that damage-free? Likely a repaint, maybe not Columbus.

Pros: Lugwork is very nice, suggests it could be Columbus, repainted. On the fork steer tube, check for an engraved dove in a circle (Columbus logo); must remove fork from frame to see it.
Be careful about carelessly disposing of the Zeus-2000 parts, as many had titanium bits and pieces, sometimes in unexpected places (pedal cages, not just the axles).

+1 on mid-to-late-80's vintage. May we ask for more details on the parts mix, and what you paid for the whole package?

pillar size could indicate metric tubeset. might be a.l. columbo after all. check for steerer rifling.

given the arregui bits it wears there is the possibility it may be a razesa.
