Focus RS-500?

I am looking for some info on a bike I picked up last week, It's a Focus RS-500, Tange frame that looks to be the same as a Trek 400 I have, it has a SunTour cyclone drive train, Dia-compe brakes, Sakae SA crank, 12 speed, 700 wheelset, and Sakae drop bars, looks like a typical mid 80's bike. Does anyone know anything about this bike.

I'm usually a fair web searcher, and can't find anything about a Focus brand bike. You sure that the stickers are original? Do the lugs have any special markings? Do you have pics you can post?

I check the lugs, I didn't see any markings, decals look to be orginals, I did note the the rear wheel hanger has adjustment screws, I will try to get some pictures posted.

I saw lot's of Focus mtn and hybrids, less road, in the Toronto region in the early/mid 90's. Typical mid level, good value Pacific rim production bikes.
