Maybe my Gran Turismo is older than 1982, given it is only five speed. I'll check the derailleurs for date codes once I tear it down. The bike has a Suntour BL GT RD and a Suntour BL FD which according to the Suntour thread, came out in 1981.

Update: I am sticking with 1982 vintage, as the seat post dated May 82, the SR crankset dated May 82, the FD dated Dec 81 and the RD dated Nov 81.

Serial number on the bike is K346143
