Need help with an identification.

Found this on craigs. I'm not sure what the frame is, but it has some higher end featyres. It appears to have a monostay in the back, forged dropouts, two water bottles bosses and at least a mid range Shimano group on it. It's tig welded so it has to be at least late 80's Any ideas. Just an FYI I am not interested in buying this. I was just curious. Something other to talk about other than Paramounts

It's newer than late 1980s due to the dual pivot brakes. It appears to be the later 1056 version of Shimano 105SC, with the exception of those pedlas, so it could be anywhere from 1993-1998. If so, it's worth the asking price, just for the parts.

I was just curious to see what make it was. If it was my size and I didn't have 10 bikes already, I might have made an offer
