Help needed identifying the model and year on this please. Seller bought it a couple of years ago, but knows nothing of the history. Frame is in superb condition, bar one tiny chip.

Pics aren't very good, but I'll add more.

She is approx 53cm, has the Precisa forks, chrome lugged headtube. Tubing is Columbus BRAIN. Ti Flite saddle.

Groupset is a mix of 8sp Ultegra, and Shimano 600 tricolor. With flightdeck computer.

Full spec on stripdown, and rebuild.

Indeed seems to be around mid-90s. I know Columbus Brain tubeset appeared in the 1993/94 season.
