Identifying a vintage peugeot ~1989

I'm looking for a hand identifying a vintage peugeot (see attached photos), I have been to all the sites i can find through google and have come back empty handed. the frame number has not narrowed it down either as it does not match the listed data.

i have guessed the date based on the suntour accushift ole components which i think began production around 1989. Full spec as follows:

Frame Tange 2 Chro mo hand braised, rainbow stripe detail with checkerboard on downtube, bike name 'mirage'
Kusuki winpista handle bars
Suntour Ole front and rear mech with a sugino front crankset
Strong seat post
Mavic rims

The tange tubing has thrown me a little as i though peugeot only used Reynolds, Carbolite or HLE (peugeots own brand).

Any help appreciated, it's a lovely bike and trying to decide whether to keep or pass on.
