Miyata help - Sport Twelve?

Hi all - I'm having trouble determining the vintage of a recent Craigslist acquisition: a Miyata Sport Twelve. I have reviewed all the pages at miyatacatalogs.com - the graphics seem to match the mid-80s models but I see no mention anywhere of the Sport Twelve. Does anyone have any onfo on these? Am I correct that the "Sport" models were bottom-end? Thanks, Nat

Miyata produced a Sport 10 model in the mid 1980s, though it was actually went to 12 speed in 1986, it's last catalogued year. It's possible that Miyata changed the model name, to reflect the number of gears, after the catalogue was released. Regardless, the serial number will confirm the vintage. While these were bottom of the line models, they were still well designed, manufactured and good value.
