Cilo bicycle of 1983

Vintage road bike from ebay auction:

This bike was handbuilt in Switzerland by Cilo Swiss. It was probably one of there more mid range bikes as it doesn't feature the Columbus tubing that was used on their nicer models. It is equipped with a full Shimano 600 component group, so it's definitely not an entry level model.  Feature "HT Tubes".  The bike has a beautiful blue finish accentuated with nice lug work, and a high polish chromed fork.  The Shimano components all have a matching date code of 1983, making it the bike either a 1983 or 1984 Cilo.
