Hattori

I was given a nice looking steel bike, the only labels are Hattori and Up Sports. It has nice Nito Olympiad bars and a Sun Tour deraileur, cool looking pedals but not sure what they are. In fact, I have never seen one of these. I have googled Hattori and they are the Japanese manufacturer of Williers (now being ridden in the TDF and Giro Italia, etc.) The frame says ultralight, and the down tube and seat tube are aero. No ideas on this bike, but would like any help.

Pictures please. If you need help posting them let us know. The easiest way is to host them anywhere but your own computer. Even an ISP provided personal web site will work.

Looks like a fairly typical entry level Japanese bike from the 1980s. It appears to be in decent condition; not bad for free.
