Trek made a whole series of these bonded carbon bikes in the 1990s, mostly differentiated by the components and the paint colors.
no way of knowing which pieces are original (I never assume components on a bike are original). For instance, RD is one generation of Shimano 600, crankset is another generation. It could be several models in that group. Value is all about condition, so whether its a 2100 or a 2300 does not matter anyway. Same with exact year, whether its 16 years old or 20 years old has no impact on value.
1993 or newer bikes are all on bikepedia. Earlier than that are at the vintage Trek site.
Its not a collectible bike, its a rider. Focus on fit, price and condition, rather than model and year.
