Specialized Hard Rock Cruz ID

I have purchased what I believe to be a 1991ish Specialized HardRock Cruz. It has all 7 speed SunTour XCT components and Araya Wheels. Serial Number is MOK 85678. It has a Direct Drive Off Road Tange CrMo decal.

Is this a 1991 model? Am I to assume that the frame, fork and stays are all Tange straight gauge CrMo? I cannot seem to find an exact match. Found a Specialized catalog online in German that seems to be a close match but the colors listed are white and bright red.

Thanks for any help.

Specialized HardRock Cruz matches up most closely to a 1991 according to the German Specialized Catalogs I found on the link below. It is the only year I specifically see the Cruz as a HardRock model. Color does not match but components are close and the graphics match. There was a 1990 model with a blue frame but different graphics. Wonder if they had the frame left over and put the 1991 component group and graphics on it.

Check-out the link for many MTB catalogs in German of course.

* The bike is either from the late 80's or early 90's.
* Some bike models aren't sold in every country.
* The specifications of some bike models can vary depending on what country they are sold.
