A couple of these same frames have come up for discussion before, and I IRC, they were identified as German made, and possibly the house brand of one particular German bike shop, but I can't remember the name.
I'm too lazy to try to find it in the archives right now, but I'm positive that the cutouts in the previous frames were the same as on this bike.
Anyway, not a Colnago. (Those beefy seatstays are another giveaway.)

I? think it's a fake... That fork has a Nervex crown, lugs look all wrong, cutouts look "OFF". Something is wrong here....

I think I'm hallucinating, but there's this 'Nago on eBay with Reynolds 531 tubing. Also the seat stays look odd (suspect)? The lugs look well finished and
the paint is sparing applied. Also, the seller has been around for some tim e and I have no reason to suspect him. Any comments?
My '75 Colnago is looking for a companion.
