Anybody's guess, surprised if it's top Columbus tubing though (fork's a cheapie).

If it is Italian could be a low end Rossin.

Post, we've had none for ages, we've been snowlocked since Sunday.

Roadking.

EL was a 90's tubing, one of the lightest Columbus made at the time. My Ellis-Briggs Favori is made of the standard sized set. I would say it's more than half-decent!

Thanks Ned (thats a nice Bike you have there too :wink: ) its just what Roadking said further up....made me wonder.

Ive unpacked it now and there are a few features that might help ID it...More pictures tomorrow as I'm knackered now......It seems to be just EL (not EL OS) as the sticker says so :P

It is fillet brazed too which I'm not sure if I like or not......I'm a lugs man personally!

The only serial number I can find is on the steerer of the fork and it says '1600'

No other markings anywhere........ :?:
Its got a distinctive brake bridge tho.......I have seen similar somewhere.

So what Italian manufacturers used EL and Fillet brazed them then? Or did they all?

And who is/was A.UZABIAGA.....anyone important?
