I think yours is 1998, as in the serial number.
You can use the Gallery archive too:

Approach the frame in a friendly and confident manner, try and be humorous. Be at ease and be a good listener, see if the frame has got any plans for the weekend. If the answer is no, ask if the frame would care to join you for a drink anb maybe a film.

Its a '99, I'm 100% sure on that as I have one here in red. Plus I bought a Karakoram new back in '99 with the same style graphics.

Your Zaskar was a '99 model year then. Which of course would have been on sale in the latter part of '98.

Not long after an old Chinese woman came back to China from her visit to her daughter in the States, she went to a city bank to deposit the US dollars her daughter gave her. At the bank counter, the clerk checked each note carefully to see if the money was real. It made the old lady out of patience.


  At last she could not hold any more, uttering. "Trust me, Sir, and trust the money. They are real US dollars. They are directly from America."
