That decal is older than 1985. Whether it is original to bike or not, no idea.

If the bike has brazed on bottle bosses, then the decals are not original.

Sorry for the poor quality, but is the only one that I have. Nothing similar found in the 1981 or the 1986 Tange Catalog, maybe is from the '70?!

Who knows. Are you looking in the correct catalogs for your (or the bikes) country of sale?

Hm, looks similar to this:

So, "single butted, hi-tensile steel" is not very light, i presume!

+1, it appears to be a Tange #102 sticker. It was a single butted, hi-tensile steel tubeset marketed in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Claimed weight was 580g more than Tange #2. Shimano 105 Golden Arrow components would put it 1983-1986, unless it's a retrofit. Most 105 equipped bicycles were lower mid-range and typically came with butted CrMo or butted CMn. I don't think I 've ever seen 105 on this low level a frame and that does look like it could be a 105 brake caliper.

I think that may be the wrong sticker for the frame bike the details I can see are more in line with a CrMo level frame and not a high ten 102.
