"Saronni" frame identification

Hey,
Can anyone help me identify this bike? It has Saronni stickers and high end components. There is a clover on the frame, however it has a different bottom than the usual colnago logo. Bottom bracket only has the number 1 engraved. Dropouts on frame and fork have Campagnolo on them. I will add photos.

Does anyone know what brand / age this bike is? Thank you very much.

Sounds like 1980-1982.

sorry but I think this is a "Faux-nago": the clover/club in the lug looks "wrong" as do the lugs themselves as do the stay caps and brake bridge. My guess is it's made in Benelux. Might be a perfectly nice bike as long as you know what is is and (probably) isn't.

Yup, agree with @unworthy1: fake. The clover cut-out is not the type used on any Colnago. Probably a Cornello or similar; normally this particular "clover" cutout is seen on some mid-to-lower range frames that came out of Belgium bitd. Somebody found a set of Saronni decals and slapped them on hoping either for some instant street cred or a payoff down the road.

It's nice, but it's not in any way a Colnago product. Sorry
