Identify Frame, Help please.

Hi all. The ad was for a Colnago, however when i get there after a 2.5 hour train and bus ride is see it is not a Colnago. I offered 60 just for the parts it had (dura ace ax, barkes crank, wheel set and camagnolo derailleurs) also the Columbus sl fork.
I have cleaned up the bike and used the handle bar from the damaged Koga and is riding fantastic. Use it every day for work.
it is very light for steel, weighing in at 8.9 kg
The cable guide is under the frame, where there is along under the whole TT a grove to push the cable in.
Also a number hanger.

I like what I see there -- you did very well for the price.

Please give us the usual dimensions, including BB shell width and threading and seat post diameter.

Nice purchase! How about some pictures that are not birds eye view but straight on and include triangle intersections, fork, drive side as well as the info John E requested. Orient the pictures so we don't have to cock our heads too, please.

57cm frame, 27.2 seat post diameter.
The bike had Colnago stickers on it, they looked pathetic.

Appears a good deal.
Colnago must be the most faked C&V road bike out there.

There are quite a few fakes in the netherlands and belgium. Living in Amsterdam i have seen quite a few. I purchased this bike after seeing the parts. I mentioned to the guy i purchased this from that the not even the decals are not original Colnago.
I purchased this one about a month later.
