80's vintage, not sure of the year

I just picked this up for $50 from the auction house down the road.

It's a graecross, tapered CroMo, full indexed 6 speed 105, and biopace rings, appears original except for the rear rim, and apart from some patina is in excellent shape looks like it was hardly used.

just curious if anyone can help me narrow down the year.

Read through How Old Is My Bike? and you should come pretty close to identifying vintage. Hope this is a help.

thanks for he help guys. even though the frame is too big for me. 59, I'd be happier with anything around 48-50, I was pretty upset to find that it's been in a head-on shunt, there's a bulge in the tube just behind the lug at the head end of the DT. I was going to build a nice fixie for my brother with it... Dark times.
