I bought a bike the other week, mainly for the groupset. I wonder if anyone can help me identify the make of frame. It has Shorter transfers on it now, but the frame has been repainted a some stage in its life. The original receipt from Paolo Garbini Cycle Centre Ltd in Great Pulteney Street W1R back in 1985 states "to one very special (Limited Edition) Racing Bike - Columbus (SLX)" then it lists details of the rims and the Campag 50th Anniversary groupset etc.

The frame has a P and want I think is a C or G, although I think it looks like a Pac Man stamped on the fork crown; top of the seat stays and a C or G on the rear brake bridge.

Thank you in advance for your help

Apparently the PG stands for Paolo Garbini the Shorter transfers confused me :-)

Shorter would be the bike shop that did the respray, or rather they had the frame resprayed.
