Sunn Bikes

I was hoping someone would be able to help.

I own a Sunn road bike which I bought from eBay a while ago. Blue steel frame and forks, RSX groupset. I think (guess) it dates from the early / mid 90s. Overall a nice bike to ride.

My question is, does anyone know any more about Sunn bikes or what this one might be in particaulr?

A google search throws up very little about Sunn either current or past other than some mountain bikes.

I would really welcome any background / history on the make - where were they built etc.

I could provide a picture if that helps.

Thanks in advance.

    Sunn were a brand based in Andorra, mainly building their reputation through MTB under a guy called Max Commencal. They first went bust about 10 years ago and someone probly bought the goodwill and relaunched them -- sounds like they went bust more recently too. RSX shifters suggest something from the late 90s as it was replaced by Sora in 2000.
