Help ID vintage bike

Hello Dear Forum Members,
I need help to ID a road bike.
It has Bocama pro lugs, Campagnolo dropouts, 28mm down tube and seat tube, 26mm top tube. It has Stronglight 93 cranks and features a very distinct serial number plaquette on the Non-drive side of the seat tube (near the top of the seat tube). The serial number is: 262992.
I'm sorry, I have photos but cannot attach them as I'm new to the forum. If someone can help me post photos, that would be awesome. Any help is much appreciated!

Yep to Allegro and other things to note: there's an Allegro serial number database you should be able to dig out in this forum via the search tool, you can narrow down the build-date by comparison and should reach out to the data-master and add yours to his list.
Also this has a Georg Fisher sand-cast BB shell (Swiss made and Swiss threaded), almost certainly is all Reynolds 531, you seatpost should be 26.4 (or POSSibly 26.6).
I have a few random decals (vinyl stickers) you might like if you want to do more of a rolling restoration (someday), I had a batch custom printed years back by VeloCals.
Also note it would NOT have had that under-BB cable routing originally.

Wow, thanks a lot everybody!
Do you have any idea what it might be worth?
It's a beautiful bike but a bit small for me.

Thanks a lot, might hit you up for the stickers!

You might want to post that question to the "What's it worth-Appraisals" sub forum, here:
https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-v...th-appraisals/
and keep in mind that your location (Europe? Hungary?) will be a critical factor.
