That's a good fit for the Laser brand, which had it's debut in late 1982 for the 1983 model year. 105 is also an appropriate level for tretubi Aelle. I'd be leaning to 1985-1986, as fade paint schemes really didn't become popular until late 1984, when Grewal won the road race at the LA Olympics on his Pinarello with the Arco paint scheme. It shouldn't be as late as 1987, unless it's been rebuilt, as 2nd generation New 105 was introduced for the 1987 model year. Component date codes should corroborate the time frame.
