Ray,
    I get the impression that, in Belgium, refinishing bikes to appease a current sponsor's sensibilities is an even more common practice than elsewhere.
    For all I know, the bike in question is an authentic Colnago.
   But it does seem as though a disproportionate number of Belgian race bikes pass through several racers and liveries. I think that's what the CR guys from the Netherlands find so frustrating when they chase down those special bikes "south of the border".
     Cheers,
