Unfortunately, the bike was purchased out of town, and it is currently in another city. I will be heading down to pick it up in two weeks. Can't wait bring it home to start cleaning up and working on it. Here are the pics of the bike from the CL ad.

Your Rockhopper looks just like mine with Exage 500LX components on it. Mine has a sticker from the original store in Utah, where the original owner (who I bought the bike from) purchased the bike at. On the sticker, it has four years printed and the year for 1990 was punched out which I take is the year of the bike. Hope this helps.
