Looks remarkably similar to an 854 though... could build it up like that, but with 700c wheels?

Even in my dulled state I can now understand the last digit = the year, but what does the 75 mean, or in my case, the 35 mean?

Does anyone know how many models were in the '93 year? Was the 35(3) a base model?
