I was the official importer for Battaglin bikes in the 80;s when Roche roade for them.
All the frames, no matter what frame tubing. received exactly the same painting and chrome plating, so all the Carrera team bike coloured frames looked the same apart from the tubing labels and the seat post size.
But in the 80's not many people bought 'off the peg' frames prefering to have them built to order by a Uk frame builder.
25 years later people realize the quality of Battaglin frames, for sure on a par with any of the other Italian builders

Likely to be Columbus SL or SLX then. Not sure on age though, but it looks very similar to my 89 model.
