Yup - sounds like '97 to me.. The decals are consistent with the '97 too. Looks like Altus cranks and brakes too?
I think it's a 2000, I'm guessing 3x7 drivetrain, Parallax hubs & Tourney mech?
If it's 7 on the rear it's a 2000, 8 would make it a 3000
The trouble with the Daewoo's was that I think they were sold through their car dealerships (which were new in the UK at the time) and they sold essentially re-badged 5-year old Vauxhall Astras & Cavaliers, so it wasn't exactly a first port of call for a car or a bike!
Nice frame tho - I considered getting one at the time (hence my vague recollection of prices, specs etc!) but went with a Saracen instead and regretted it as it was a good chunk heavier!
