Another "It won't hurt to turn a Trek into a Masi" heartbreak.

I am with T-Mar on this: a "Torresini (Torpado and Italvega)... would be the leading candidate for manufacturer." and as he says, too early to be a genuine "Sarroni-licensed" frame and certainly nothing made by a Colnago builder. But not a bad score for the money you paid, given the Campy DOs and fork-ends it's most likely mainly, if not fully, Columbus SL

No need to be disappointed at all...you won this deal handily. Remove the stickers, service, find a few decent parts as temporaries, and ride as is...lots of great patina. If you like it, restore it, otherwise you likely have a nice rider!
1. The Gran Sport crank, BB and HS are worth pretty close to the price of admission.
2. Modolo Sporting and Coppi saddle are pretty rare birds. Cinelli bar and stem...!
3. The frame, though a bit crude in places, has Campy dropouts and likely Columbus SL.

I was leaning toward it was an ItalVega, but that's above my knowledge base.

So FWIW here is what looks to be a Colnago built Saronni (panto'd seat stay caps, two cable guides) with the same/similar decals as the OP's:

Interesting frame with some interesting details and decent quality. I bet if it's straight it will ride nicely.

The 70's and early 80's Torpado, Italiavega superlight, Univega superlights (made by Torpado) have the same bottom bracket cutouts and diamond cutouts in the lugs.

You must be right, have a look at bicycle shown in this page - these are so similar:

Yeah - I know - thanks! But I am from a strange part of Europe and I guess because of that it took quite a number of more posts for some to believe what I posted... ;-) I am not bitter...

To be fair, @unworthy1 suggested a Torresini build in post #7, but it's not a competition, is it?

So I am confused, who built the frame set, Torresini or Torpado?

Well Torresini founded Torpado, so they both did.

Ah - but our truly worthy friend wrote "perhaps"!

Not a competition... Hmpf!

To be honest - I did not know about Torresini. I did know about Torpado. Every day here on BF makes ones knowledge grow.

Hence why I noted that it was 'suggested'. Don't worry, you still win, just thought there was credit due.
