Can anyone help me with this model?

Hey guys. I have a Trek multitrack. It's a darker blue with Hollow white lettering and a grey shadow to the lettering. It's a 730 multitrack. I cannot find an image of another anywhere. Just curious what year and exact model this is? Thanks

"It's a 730 multitrack"
So much for the model. The year could be narrowed down by examining the components, most of the time the components are engraved with the year of manufacture. many older bikes were offered in several different colour schemes, a particular combination could have been sold for several years. In addition, an older bike could have had many components changed over a couple of decades of use. The year of manufacture might not even reflect the year that the frame was built if Trek built up frames a year or more before they built them into bicycles

Probably 1998 from this list of colors for the Trek 730 Multi-track at the vintage-Trek website
92, red with white decals
94, forest green with gold decals
95, ice green with white decals
96, ice fire (red) with gold decals, also dry ice green/dry ice blue fade with silver decals
97, gloss ice cream with blue decals, also gloss ice forest green with titanium decals
98, black with green decals, also cactus with silver decals, also Mediterranean blue/inkwell fade with white decals

Another clue as to the age is the frame construction. Trek went from brazed lugged frame construction on many of their steel bikes (primarily made in Wisconsin, I think) to TIG welded and much more Asian produced stuff in about 1994.
