Pretty sure a Billato Bros. "B". Google that and I bet you find a match...eventually. They did FAR more contract-building for other (big) names than they did under their own name.

Oops, I spelled it wrong, my mistake.
Here's some history:
"Sheldon Brown on Billato:
Roberto Billato and his two brothers, Stephano and Silvano, have built the company their father founded just after the end of World War II into Italy's premier frame building company. And while you may not recognize the name Billato, you are familiar with the family's works of art. Billato frames have won World Championships both off-road and on the road, in countless many spring classics as well as in a little race called the Tour de France. Indeed, there are less than a handful of bicycle companies who can boast such a long list of victories. Which is certainly why many of the worlds most prestigious brands rely on the Billatos for their craftsmanship."

I wasn't trying to be a smart arse, I only corrected it so that the OP would be able to research. It wasn't meant to be a YOU'RE WRONG! Hope that didn't come through poorly.
