ID this look or is it just a looker

Hey guys, I have an opportunity to save a vintage frame from utmost humiliation and I need your help ID'ing it. The frame says "look" but the stickers seems a little bit suspicious.

First off, this is a cromoly (not sure as i have not seen the frame) frame which is why it's somewhat uncommon for a look. based on research it could be based on a kg 221 231 241. but the decals and patterns dont fit any (my eyes are about to bleed from googling look frames etc)

I've never seen a look badge on the downtube that wasn't strethced on the steel bikes. Also wouldn't there would be a look stamped on flat part of the seatstay where it meets the seat tube (although after reading a bit on the bernard hinault steel frames, plain is more authentic). This frame is also missing the head decal.

Basically, i need to find out if this is really a look or just another looker. If possible what year and model. thanks guys

I vote highly likely. The internal routing in the side and out the top is correct, that fork is correct for look frames for many years
