I'd put the Bronze age ending a bit later than 1983, say 1986 or so. That's when the stories got very dark and the classic comic book art fell away in favor of highly stylized art. From 1986 or so onward, any pretense that comics were for kids ended. It's also when the gimmicky stuff began with special covers and new series with issue #1s to cater to would be investors kicked in.
