Raleigh M20 Mountain-Trail 21 speed bicycle

I've the aforementioned bike, having serial #R905270034 on the BB, and I don't see a dating chart with this type of serial number on any site.

Although the bike has a decal which says "Mountain-Trail", this bike has no absorbers.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Mike

Friend had one from around 1999 in blue. Lowest model in Raleighs mountain bike line up, came fully rigid in a time when suspension forks were pretty widespread. Think it had some sort of Shimano Tourney drivetrain with the C30 model that had the big red shimano sticker on the derailleur I believe.

It's a 97'. You go by the first and fifth numbers.
