Dating a Royce Union

I picked thsi Royce Union Annex 2.1 today, and was wondering if anyone has any info on it. How can I find the year it was made. It has Sram Gripshifters, 7 speed with DX 297 Aluminum rims. Has a Humvee 700 front suspension with linear pull brakes. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a different Royce Union I won in '93 or '94 at a charity event. It has the same stem. But it has a very traditional frame. Good luck.

I rode one when I first started commuting. I always assumed it was just an average X-mart mountain bike. It held up pretty well for about 7 months of being constantly pounded on so it couldn't have been that bad- especially when I made the front fork rigid and did away with the rear suspension. The addition of skinny slicks and better V-brakes completed the frankenstein transformation.

Mine had Shimano (very low end- just called "SIS") drive train parts. You could try to find a date code if you've got Shimano stuff on it and match that up at vintage-trek.

*Edit:
And mine was an "Isolator DS" in case you were curious. Not that it matters- there isn't ANY information on the internet about them. I also forgot to mention that mine was date coded as a '99.
