Interesting seat cluster treatment. What does the serial # look like?

Itís almost completely devoid of details.

Here is what I see.
- A tange fork that is of pretty decent quality. Not consistent with the stuff on Trek or Specialized.
- The stem looks a lot like the ultra classic A-tac but isnít.
- Does the one frame decal say ďprestigeĒ for frame material?

It looks like 1993-94 and was an excellent bike in its day. Itís not a trek. I donít know much more. Iím curious too.

Like tungsten asked what about the serial number? That is a decent way to find out what the bike is. I cannot tell through those pictures but I am not an absolute expert in older stuff. You might first of course post the serial number and then ask the moderators to move it to Classic and Vintage as sometimes they are good sleuths.

Not sure of the make but possibly a December of 1991 build? T-Mar may know and made an absolutely amazing thread which is still active on Asian serial numbers and what they wrote might correlate to what I am guessing?
