Order forms from that period show tubular tires being an option, so it could've come with 700c wheels as original equipment.

If they were still also available as frameset only in '83 (like the 950/750 were in 80-82) that could actually be the original build done by a shop.

1986. Likely a Nova Special or Special X. Does not appear to have aged well; paints not great and I spy some rust at the top tube cable guides. Frameset is likely worth $250-275.
