ID Help Sought for New FMoser

Can someone tell me more about this bike (date); What material the frame is and what model? The decals are primarily on the seat tube (Corsa-looks like a tubing material type sticker) and F Moser Technology, and on the seat stays to mark the world championship. The bike appears to have been Shimano 500 originally, with a 600 FD and 105 STI shifters added? Wheels were added for the photo-it had some Ambrosio wheels with Exage hubs. Any info you can lend is appreciated.

The frame is definitely steel. The lugs give that away.
This looks like an early 90's model 92ish. So look for a serial number with two digit year on the underside of the bb. there should be numbers on both the left and right side.
The internal break cable routing on the top tube reminds me of the Leader AX model. but those have silver brazed tube junctions, not lugs. Perhaps this is an earlier model?

It's a pretty safe guess the tubing is not Columbus or Reynolds. Moser has a history of using Falck and possibly other makes of tubing in their entry-mid range offerings. They also have a history of having some rather nice offerings at entry level. Not sure what it is. Likely not their top-of-the line model, but it looks quite nice.
In search of what to search for.

Seat post size? I had an entry level Moser made from Columbus Aelle, and a TK1 filet brazed Dedaccia tubing drawn for Moser.

Didn't Moser use Oria on a lot of models? Maybe they were more recent ones though.
