Specialized Sirrus Year identification?

Alright, i bought this for 65 dollars, and am curious to what year it is. It has shimano rx100 components and wolber rims. I believe the paint and decal is faded, but here's a picture.

I am no Specialized expert but I think the RX100 would put it in the '91-'94 era?

I'd put my money on 1991. If I recall correctly, the colors for '90 were carried over from '89 which was a flamboyant Perlecent white and Red scheme.

Very good find! I have the same bike and I am pretty sure it's a '91. I've seen posts on ebay and craigslist with the same bike saying it's a '91. I've set mine up with a black/red theme and threw some RSX STI shifters on there. It rides like a dream!

Yes, it was a good find, but it's more beat up than it looks but at least the wheels were true. The crank wobbles, or is loose and i don't know how to fix it. i'll have to take it in to the shop and maybe get a new bottom bracket.

do both arms move? or just one? with a bit of luck that still has a cup and cone BB and they can overhaul it. maybe even just adjust it.
