Help with Trek T50 year model

I just acquired a pristine Trek T50 Double Track. The person I bought it from did not know any of the history except that he bought it used a couple of years ago. It has Sakae cranks, Deore XT DR's Sansin hubs. The serial number is 1076413 B1. It is a medium metallic blue.
Anybody have a clue what year model it is.

FWIW: in Europe, the T50 has only been sold in 1993 and 1994. So it'll very probably date from the early 90s.

As already noted, the T50 was only offered in 1993 & 1994 and the 7 digit serial number beginning with 1076 (noting that 'B1' is not part of the serial number) would suggest that it was a 1993 model.
