ID'ing vintage Olmo

Hi all, I've acquired an Olmo that's in pretty good condition but has definitely been a ridden bike and not overly pampered. I'm trying to figure out what model and year it is for my own curiosity, and I'd love if you could help me at all. It looks pretty similar to the '84s in one of the bulgier.net Olmo catalogs, but the groups don't match.

- Serial Number: 55 4583 (the "55" is the size, correct?)
- Frame decals: 1 "Giuseppe Olmo" signature, no other markings (can't tell if they were removed or never existed)
- Columbus decals on frame and fork ("forcella originale")
- Chrome fork and right chainstay
- Campy Victory groupset/headset/BB
- Has the pump nipple on the headtube
- braze-on front derailleur hanger

The previous owner build it up as a SS cross bike and unfortunately kept the original wheelset, so when I convert this back to a full roadie I'll have to get a proper wheelset.


p.s. I apologize for the non-white-garage-door photo, I don't have a garage.
