Shimano Eagle was typically used on entry level bikes.
Without pics, I am assuming your bike is an entry level, department store bike from the bicycle boom era. Back then, there were waiting lists to just get a bike, almost any bike. So every store sold bicycles, many of them just relabeled from others. I bought my first bike from a lawn mower repair shop during that era!!
Since there were so many brands back then, and few of them built the bikes, you will be hard pressed to find much info.
