no, that looks like the

no, that looks like the columbus generation of medici.

it's the components.

All shimano 600....puts it at late 80s. I did see some crazy paint jobs with the same kind of chroming...fork and rear dropout areas with tange decals.

Pretty sure is a Columbus Medici, not Tange

I'm pretty sure that's a Columbus SL/SP Medici frame, not Tange.
The larger 59cm frames were mixed with SL/SP. I have to agree
with above, despite the Shimano, which really could have been
installed at any time. Always dug those early Medici. Brian
Baylis has an in-depth analysis on Medici's history, a rather
compelling company, with the host of ups and downs of Medici's
tenure, including how they came about with those lugs patterned
after a crude take-off of Mario Confente's design. Confente
refused to be associated with that whole affair. I actually
made a webpage of the Brian Baylis Medici Timeline
from CR. It's an interesting read for sure.

That frame sort of begs for Campag of the day. Probably a
Medici Pro Strada. Cool bike. It sure deserves some better
shots from more angles.
