Components from 1988 Miyata 312

I have some original components from a 88 Miyata 312. I searched on Wiki and it says they are shimano 105, however I do not see 105 anywhere on them. My freewheel is mf-z012 and front derailer is fd-a350 if that helps. I am trying to list these on eBay, but I am not sure if they are truly part of a 105 group. Any help would be appreciated.

Does it really matter if it's part of a 105 group? Someone may know the hierarchy and what group the fd-a350 came from, if any. VeloBase.com - Component: Shimano FD-A350

The Miyata catalog does not mention 105, just the parts that are used on the 312. Miyata Bicycle Catalogs: Miyata Catalog 1988

Just take the following ad and click, "sell one like this". Done.

Thanks for the reply. I had started to "sell one like this" but decided I wanted to sell everything together. So I was wondering to name it as partial shimano 105 group. Unless you think it would be easier to list everything separately.

Usually the Shimano format would be FD105?? or BL105?? so without, I would assume it's not 105

The 312 was Miyata's entry-level "racing/competition/fitness" bike in 1988, so it makes sense that it wouldn't be equipped with nicer, more expensive 105 parts. According to the catalog tmh657 linked above, the Miyata 712, two models up from the 312, was the model equipped with 105.

That would be more work. You can see what those parts are listed at and sell for so don't expect a windfall profit after ebay and paypal fees. You might try to market them on BF if you have the upgraded membership. Sell them for less but no fees.
