Vintage Norco road bike identification and assessment

I'm new to road bikes and just picked up a bike that i don't know too much about. The bike has araya 27 x 1.25 rims, sunstar components and the steel frame is seamless. I'm aware that the components are low grade but everything worked good and I didn't pay much.
I'm mostly interested in identifying the year and model or any other interesting insights.

Thanks guys!

Hi nanogram,

it looks like a Norco Sports model from 1980, but need some more pictures to confirm this.

Can you post pictures of the serial number on the BB shell, the seat tube lug, the headbadge, and head tube lugs?

Thanks for posting more pictures.

The top tube decal is the model: Sports.

The serial number:

Y = Yamaguchi the maker of the frame
9 = 1979 year of frame manufacture
M = December month of manufacture. (A=January, I is not used, J=September)

1980 model year, with the frame made in late 1979.

The head badge is also 1979 -82.
