My guesstimate of the year is based on the LT was first shown in the '92 catalog and yours was the 52nd built, according to the serial number.

LT is not the tubing but the method of tube joining, TIG welded instead of lugged. The lack of the LT decal isn't terribly significant.

Your bike has cable stops on the downtube, which could have replaced downtube shifters on the shifter bosses.
