Help identifying this Concorde...

Hello I was wondering if anyone here could help me identify this concorde.

It has Campy Nuovo Record and Campy dropouts, and the cranks as well as the seatpost have milled out with a "Paolini".

It also has columbus sl tubing.

Any help would be appreciated!

Concorde Colombo...80's model. Looks like someone played around with the BB shell cutout...but...I'm not that familiar with it to say. Probably Bilato built like a lot of '80's Concordes.

The Paolini stuff was an add on, obviously...

I agree that that Paolini stuff is not original. I can't imagine a Concorde with that cutout, most of them are not really personalized (as in custom cutouts etc.). Also, it is missing the characteristic italian flag braze-on on the TT. My columbus is made with columbus SL and based on the paint and the tubing should be from the same era, but from all the frame characteristics it's a totally different era. Definitely a mutt but would be a great rider with a little TLC.

BB shell cutout is Rauler - is that weird or what?
