ever heard of a "regal" bicycle?

guy i know has a frame he is doing a build on i am kind of new to bikes but its an older vintage looking mountain bike frame standard round tubing lugged frame really basic but nice and light,its a funky red white and blue color and says regal in cursive on the top tube
i couldn't find a thing on the net, there are some frame sets from italy i think that are called regal but they are like a thousand bucks, it isn't one of them
i don't know if i am being much help with my lame attempt at describing this thing without pictures
any guesses?

Long shot: there was a swedish brand called Union. They made road bikes up ´til the 50´s. They made a cheaper model called Regal. But I cant see it ending up in the states.

Bike that does not show up on the web = department store brand/private label brand. Note, by the 1980s, some of the private label branded bikes were decent, in the 1970s, most were crap. So evaluate based on what the frame is made out of, the grade of components, and the overall condition. I am pretty much brand agnostic.

Nice and light = get a scale, and compare to other bike frames.
