From the 1985 Miyata Catalog:
“Like all of our models, frame integrity is evident in the 710 and has been designed with the triathlon contestant in mind. ChroMoly Triple butted tubing, fully lugged frame, Mangalight fork, Suntour gear system and Dia Compe brakes… A bicycle with the right frame of reference whether you’re in competition or just street riding.” This is a sharp looking bicycle with nice components on an excellent steel frame with new tires, handlebar tape and saddle.
