It looks like a late 80s Viva Sport model. Nice sport touring type of bike of modest value.

Even the lower end Univegas were well made. I have a 1982 Viva Sport and really like it. Everything functions perfectly and it is reasonably light. Nice bike! There are not many Univega catalogs available, but I think yours is a 1987. I can see it needs a few things like bar tape and a new saddle.

French Univega? Doubt it. Japan, probably.
