I'm not sure what kind of bike this is. It has Columbus tubing and Shimano 600 components...

I don't see anything that stands out to make for a definetive ID. I can tell the bike is a mid to upper level from the mid 80's.
Some clear drive side pics and pics of the seat luster would help.

I don't understand the question...Is there a reason to believe it is not a Cinelli?

It doesn't look like a Cinelli. A Cinelli would have a very different seatstay/binder treatment. Cinelli made great BB shells and almost everyone used them at one time or another.

From what I understand many frame builders used Cinelli BB shells on their bikes, so I do not know what kind of frame this is.

The drop out appear to be Columbus. Does that ring a bell for anyone?

Not really. Like the Cinelli BB shells, Columbus sourced dropouts were used by lots of framebuilders.

I don't recall anybody who scalloped the stay caps on both the outside and inside. I would think that this would result in relatively poor lateral rigidity.
