Subject: [CR]Identifying Columbus Tubing

I am trying to help identify the year of a bike frame...and wanted to see if anyone had any information on the years this was made and its relative quality.

It is Columbus tubing, and I know it is from some time in the eighties. The sticker uses the 80's logo, but is damaged, and the "B" in columbus is missing, along with the first letters of the tubing type, which end in "ELLE". There is probably only one letter missing there....

Anyhow, wanted to know what it was, what type of bikes used it, and how it compared with SL or SLX....
