I would've thought it was a 1993 model year.

Edit: I always equate MC1 with white Klein deboss lettering as 1993. I'm sure there are exceptions though.

the Klein down tube logo and the Sea&Sky paint are from the MC2 era (started with the 1994 model year in 09/93). the frame is a 1993 (31.6mm seat post and 1 7/8" down tube) and either was repainted in 94 or 95 or painted as left over frame in 93.
