Is that one of the Coors Light team paint schemes?

A friend of mine had one that looked just like that. Early 90s I think. Stiff as hell

I don't know much about Serotta serial numbers, but the one on your bottom bracket is lower than that on an '83 frame I have (83313) -- I was led to believe that the scheme was 2-digit year followed by a production number. Is the NDS chain stay bent?

I have an early Serotta Colorado model (1985), that looks very similar to this one. I’m not sure if that fork crown, with the triple S’s, has some special meaning. Mine has a single S and Colorado in script. I would guess it’s of 86’ vintage.
