I almost grabbed a silver Allez Pro but the TriColor group was incomplete and I was not interested in an aluminium fork. That green one looks late 80s but never seen those lugs on an Allez.

I’m guessing it is a 1988. The horizontal dropouts would seem to make it earlier, but I’ve seen pics of ‘87 and ‘88 Allez with them.
