I ask because I just acquired a lovely 1984 Panasonic 'City Bike' (in "Imperial Red" no less) on CL for the extravagant sum of $25.
The frame is in nice shape, scuffs & fading aside; it fits me perfectly and it's light as a feather. The fork is Tange and (by weight) obviously Hi-Ten, and it's listed as such in the catalog (thanks Chome Molly), but the frame itself is simply listed as being chromo, and yet it's so light that I'm wondering if it isn't butted?
