Azzuri BCAmerica

Found a stepthrough Azzuri BCAmerica in a thrift shop with a broken rear wheel. Can anyone give me some information on this bike?

Entry level 80s bike.

Bicycle Corporation of America was started in the 80s by former Ross workers (both companies were local to me in Lehigh Valley) when Ross stopped making low end frames in Allentown and started to import the low end bikes... BCA was very short lived, since they went under in the late 80s IIRC.

any quirks? Hard to repair? Reasonably sturdy?

no, no, yes. High tensile steel frame, maybe cromoly (need pictures ) Think basic bike with standard japanese components and english threading.
