Miyata had an entire Sport series. Some of the higher end of the sport series, was not too bad. The lower end was borderline department store quality. Suntour stuff is meaningless, as Suntour made everything from bottom of the barrel, to high end, and everything in between.
Note, the better end of the series did not use the name "Sport" in the model designation. So I am going to guess this bike is more like the "Sport 10", which was very basic (steel crank, stem shifters, steel rims, claw derailleur hanger, steel seat post, etc.)
1985 Sport 10 came with Suntour 7 derailleurs.
