In 1989, the MB-1 was double butted Tange Prestige tubing and lugged construction. MB-2 & 3 were triple butted Ishwata tubing and lugged construction. MB-4 was tig welded triple butted Tange tubing cro-moly. MB-5 & 6 were straight gauge Tange cro-moly tubing. I'm pretty sure this was a similar lineup in 1988 and 1990, the other two years I was selling them new. Don't know about years outside of those without digging my catalogs out.

Custom Ti-Bike Part I - Conception
I love the look of brushed stainless steel, and this happens to also be the most maintainable finish, since restoring it is as simple as wiping with a scotch-brite pad.

Should the handlebars be able to be rotated on a quill stem?
There's no need for the stem to be so tight that it can't move. Steering forces when riding are tiny, so even stems that seem loose in the hold the wheel/twist the bars test are still tight enough. There's a usable range, with many including myself keeping them only "race tight" so they bars will twist in a tough crash, possibly saving the fork or front wheel. My test is to hold the wheel and twist the bars, If the fork flexes considerably before the bar slips it's more than tight enough. Another consideration is convenience. You want the bar to be tight enough to stay put through a bit of rough handling. You don't want to be checking or straightening it every time the bike falls or gets a bump here and there. So, ride the bike, and if it stays put it's fine.
