Lovely bike. A few Colnago's do pop up that are different from the norm, your extended top tube cable brazings are unusual. As the frame has a tag for a race number maybe it is a bit of a special build for the original owner who specified a few things to his taste?

Very nice indeed 8)

If this a one off frame custom built by Colnago for a customer, then it must have been specced without any of the identifying features of a Colnago frame except possibly for the head lugs cut outs and even those look a bit different from the ones I've seen!

Some unusual points:
internal routing with protruding tube,
square cutouts under bb
no "Colnago" engravings,
no tubing sticker,
"Columbus" droputs rather than "Colnago",
fluted seat stay caps, which are not one of the styles on late 80s frames and also look different to the ones on early 80s frames,
paint on the stays are unusual as already mentioned.

This is my 90s Decor, also similar routing, not all colnagos have the clover cutout under the BB shell either...
Also pictured my C record super.
