Sports Model Miyata Orange Bike

I have a "Sports Model" Miyata Bike that is orange with red yellow blue green rings above the logo, the bike is labeled "Sports Model". The bike also Reads Miyata Made in Japan. I beleive it to be a 1978 as 78 are the last 2 digits in the serial number but no other numbers are on the bike. It has Shimano Tourney brakes, a Jun headset, shimano hubs and araya rims. Pretty neat looking bike if you ask me! Does any one have any more info on this bike?

The last two digits have nothing to do with the year. The letter is the key. Sounds slightly older, about 1974-1977. You don't mention the derailleurs or cranks. I'm thinking a Takagi crankset with Shimano 500 derailleur? Chrome fork tips?
