Paris-Roubaix rear rim and SSC front? Maybe not but that bike was VERY expensive in its day. I remember seeing one very similar in a shop in France. I was on a mission to pickup a bike there as it might have been cheaper than the UK at the time. It wasn't. This kind of thing was the'Holy Grail' at the time.
Yes, 2 type rims. The front rim is also showing more wear ...but the shopowner gave me a 2nd identical rear wheel and I could lace that rim to the front hub, he told me.
VERY expensive you say: I can't tell how expensive it was for the 1st owner, but it is a very well made performance frame in combination with Super Record, so yes, it must have been expensive.
Clearly visable are the final edition Super Record cranks. The bike is stripped now and I can tell the cranks are very light. Way lighter than c-Record examples. I also think they are superior in construction compared to earlier NR/SR cranks. Those were relatively prone to cracking. On the back of this final ed SR crank you can see less machining at slightly more material added at strategic places.

The callipers will make place for Deltas. Finally got a project to use them on
A fade. Popular in the 2nd half of the eighties >
Lug detail and c-Record downtube shifers >
The shifters are not symetrical. The right/rear one seems to have
a kind of mechanism in it, but it is absolutely not a Syncro shifter.
I hope you like.
