The tape might be new but it does not match the bike. Go with black tape and a new black saddle. And please put that handlebar is a correct position! Otherwise it's a lovely bike, more 1990 than 1993 and with a 105 gruppo that looks to be in good condition. You did WHAT to the rear triangle?!?!
As for the year, im not exactly sure, this is the only link that ive been able to find, but the specs somewhat vary
Also, for accuracy's sake, here's a pic of the bike in its current state.

Here's the latest iteration of my bike. Lowered the stem 15mm, changed from a 10 to 6 degree stem, cut fork, and my wife bought me race wheels.
Added white bartape to my Giant to go with the white saddle. Something looks off, can anyone else spot it? I sure can't.
And I also finished my Serotta backup/backup race bike. Yes, that's a downtube shifter you see. I figured I'd do something I've always wanted, and scratch the left STI for a DT lever.
::EDIT:: I just noticed how huge a difference there is between the two bikes in size. The Giant is a Small with a 110 stem and the saddle all the way back on the rails, and the Serotta is a square 55 cm with a 120 stem and the saddle all the way back.

Also my TT bike in race trim. I've got the extensions set at their widest (90mm from center of bar) and the arm pads are also at their widest. It works for me. I've tried narrow, I've tried the Landis, none of it feels that great.
The seat is some OEM saddle we took off of a new BMX bike, it's cheap, wide at the front, well padded, and is short enough to bring me back to 5 cm behind the BB center, but not too short so that it's UCI illegal.
white wall == white garage door?

Here is my 1990 Trek 1420, not entirely flashy and pushing 20 years old. It's a mix of Shimano 105 and Deore DX, originally sold as a sport touring model. This bike gets the majority of the miles.

Those anodized wheels are very pretty as is your entire bike.
They're my racing tires and My first race on them is on Sunday. I've never really justified a reason to take them out before this.
If Lampre and Garmin both use these tires for everything from Roubaix to TdF mountian stages, I'm sure we'll find them comfortable and grippy.
My "new" road bike. A mid nineties Avanti Pro fitted with Campagnolo Mirage, except for the Centaur RD. It's my first bike with brifters and was brought for the sole purpose of racing on. I didn't have the $$ to spring for a new road bike.
I need to get a shorter stem though. The 40km ride home killed my shoulders. I'll also save up and get some clipless pedals and shoes.
