Please help me identify the model/year of this vintage autobecan bicycle

I have recently acquired, an Autobecan bicycle. It is in mint condition. It has been kept in a garage for years all that is wrong is the tires are flat, they aren't even dry rotted! This site won't let me post any pictures until I have ten or more posts. So, if somebody would be willing to help me with my endeavour, I'll happily email some pictures to you.

Autobecan? Is that a cross between Automoto and Motobecane?

Autobecane is a cycle rental service, so likely as not the machine shall represent a contract build.

When photos become available we may be able to identify the actual manufacturer...

Cool bike. The suntour derailleurs will work great and that freewheel has pretty awesome range.
