Unfortunately, it does not have a tubing label that I can see and there are some subtle differences in the bikes.

Bikes: Wow, where to start? A collection of 1980's and early 90's road, touring, and MTBs from the likes of Trek, Schwinn, Cannondale, Fuji, Miyata, Univega, Panasonic, and GT. It has gotten rather out of control.

That lines up with what the catalogs state. Both of our bikes had the same INEXTERNAL frame construction, but the Jubilee Sport used Columbus tubing and the Mirage Sport used 2040 tubing. CATALOGUES MOTOBECANE: MOTOBECANE 1983
