The rear mech is Alivio from 1994 so likely this: http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/Bike ... IObZlI_avj

I aquired an old Diamond Back which cleaned up and rode very well indeed, despite not being the most high end specced bike. Was sold eventually to an old fella (Must have been in his mid to lat 70's) who caught the bus to collect it and then rode the 25 miles back home. He was planning to take it to Holland where his daughter lived so he could go out riding with her. I even gave him some Schwalbe City Jets so he could ditch the knobblys when in Holland. He was over the moon with it :D

I think they are the most underrated of retrobikes, which is good, as you can pick them up cheapish
