Nice find, but it's missing two of the most expensive parts of a F1 if you want it back to factory spec.  Blk/Gry Oakley B-1Bs & the Diamond Back Turbo dust caps can easily fetch an additional $400.  With that being said, very nice example

Re: Incredible 1983 D-Back Formula 1 Survivor Score:

The Grips aren't a real issue, even guys who have turbo's give up on them, the DB team ran white and blacks, the grey sleeves were just a marketing tool (Sandy told me)  I have some turbo dust caps, you wanna sell it?

I am wondering if they all came with the Turbo dust caps, because I got it from the original owner and he says he never changed anything on it.

The guy received it for Christmas one year, but then he got. PK Ripper shortly after, and the Formula One just sat around. His 10 year old kid would ride it to school and park it on the bike rack with no lock!!

Seat post clamp is not the style usually associated with a F1 either.  The style you have was the norm on 1981-83 Silver Streak models. Below is the type more closely associated with the 1983/84 F1, finished in Turbo Smoke to match the hubs, brake lever, caliper & stem cap
http://bmxmuseum.com/image/img_3606596fa6bb34_blowup.jpg

  I can see from your pics the Smoke color is still prevailent on the tech III lever & 890 caliper.  Most have faded into a Bronze color after 34 years.
