Badly faded zolotone probably = light zolotone = 1990 :D

Thin rear stays would confirm as would serial number :D

I reckon from location its the £6.11 from eBay last night. Should be a 1990, 1" headset.

I thought they'd gone to 1 1/8th by 1990 :? My friends old 1989 was 1". Saying that, if it's defo zolatone then it's a 90 :?

Not necessarily, my 1990, thin seat/chain stay Pine Mountain isn't Zolatone, it's a pale gloss grey.

I'm sure that's the 1989 colours. However, Zolatone was mainly UK - other countries didn't get it and doubtless some have since leaked across the borders!
