Thanks!

got it today at the local market, good price.

It may as well be just that, a Columbus frame, made by a local frame builder...

I like the finish on the frame, puts me in mind of the brace of P7's lurking here...

the seller had this and a Parkpre in the same finish, 90ish, I'm no expert.
these were his personal bikes.

he wanted 70CHF/45GBP for the Parkpre, I declined. I've got a bad feeling now...

Certainly Italian styled, but I don't think it's an Olmo as they signature engrave the bottom bracket shell on their high-end steel frames (which this is being Genius tubes).

Does it have an Italian threaded bottom bracket?

thanks for your help,

is there a way to find out about the thread type without extracting the BB?

EDIT: just looked at the BB through the chainring: Campagnolo 56x24 F

BB shell width would be 70mm if Italian, 68mm for English.

Hey otherself,
I was away from home, today I finally got a chance to measure the BB shell, looks like it's a 68. and dirty!
