Got my first vintage bike just now. Have done some research on this one and i belive it's a 1972 Alan Competizione. Sold in Denmark as a Saxil.

Campagnolo Nuovo Record groupset. The rear derailleur seems to have been replaced with a 1981 model. Looking forward to do some TLC on this one.

Just out of curiosity is there a production number stamped around the seat lug area?

Not that I can see.. My cycle specific english may be bad, but if you mean the area where the seatpost meets the frame there is only the framesize that is stamped in. 60x59. The only other number I can see on this bike is the 6 digits under the bottom bracket, the length of the cranklevers and the pat -81 on the rear derailleur.

There is usually some letters and numbers stamped on the seat tube, just below the seat lug righthand side, just about where the pump clip is. This info will give the type and year.

They didn't start dating the frames until 1975 if I am right. Everything I've found out points to this bike beeing a 1972 or early 73 model.
