Pinarello Asolo - what groupset did it use?

I have just purchased a pinarello asolo frame which i am going to do up - i think that it is early 90's. Anyone know what groupset was standard/common?

I've had 3 Asolo's - 2 I found as bare frames the third had a Campagnolo Super Record Gruppo which I guess was added to a bare frame originally.

Hope this image helps:

The Asolo was a mid range frame, so it probably was equipped with 105/600 or Athena/Chorus, I guess.
