Vintage, yesteryear and retro biking

Hi guys, I just picked up this guy... And I have no idea about who made it or where it came from!
It is quite light and has a mix of parts including -
Columbus stamped dropouts
Campagnolo crank and chainrings
Mavic front derailleur
Old shimano 105 headset and brake levers
Shimano 600 calipers
Misc. shimano rear derailleur
Internal cable routing
The seatpost has lost its size marking, however the 27.2 from my other bike slides extremely easily into this... So perhaps it is a 27.4 or something....
What do you think it is??
Where are you located? That might help a bit.
Maybe photos of lugs, seat stays, brake bridge, cable routing past bottom bracket and any frame numbers might help. More details basically.
Sorry guys I didn't give you much to work with did I!
Ok so I am located in Perth. I bought the bike off a lady who was selling it for her husband. They had bought it off a guy who raced professionally a few years back but the husband had never used it so it was just taking up space. That is literally all she could tell me about it.
I can't find any information online about McIntosh making bikes, which is why I am so interested to find out. The decals appear to be a professional job but I am not one hundred percent.
I can't see any numbers or engraving on the frame minus the Columbus on the dropouts!
Any help or ideas is much appreciated.
I also have a mystery frame which has the same BB cable guides as you, and Columbus dropouts. Unfortunately, I do not know much about the frame, nor the builder.
this Ciombola has similar seat stay and binder bolt set up and similar brake bridge.
Different internal cable routing though.
And mine has screw in bb cable guides.
But it might be a place to start. Late 90's ish?
Looks like another one of those Italian made Bernardi/Ferrari/Viner/Record/Abeni/technotrat type frames to me. The cable guides are familiar but I can't remember where I've seen them before (except on Quang's frame). Maybe that suggests it's a bespoke hand made job? I'd date it as late 80's. Nice frame and I wouldn't complain about owning it.
