"Quantum" bicycle

I recently got a bike and I have no idea what it is. It's brand is "Quantum" it's a Q73p. It's a chromoly frame with suntour components. I can't seem to find any info on it online except that is was possibly manufactured in Australia. Any guesses?

You need to post detailed pictures if you want more information. Be sure to take some of the drive side of the bike, along with the dropouts, lugs and any decals.

It may well be one of the thousands of private branded/department store branded bikes from the bike boom.
