Iv'e purchased this rather nice frame recently
Problem is,there is no inclination of the tubing etc
Bottom bracket numbers (5682087) and (3209) underneath
The lugs look like Boccamma professional (spearpoint)
The gent who sold it to me,seems to think it's a motobecanne
The front fork ends are Huret
Top tube brake cable guides
braze-on gear cable guides on bottom bracket
Rear dropouts have these numbers LH C70, RH 1683
Braze-on RH Rear Gear cable for Rear-Mech
Head-tube Lugs Are Stamped BCM (Boccamma)????
It Is extremely light, Maybe columbus!!
Please see photos
Any help appreciated
I need the info to make my mind up to keep and restore or sell
Regards
Cipo

Is the gear cable stop on the R/H fork-end?

If so,could well be a motobecanne.

If a 27.2 mm seat post fits , it's columbus SL

I built up a training bike with one in 80's, they were remarkably cheap at
the time .
