If I see it correct the framenumber starts with M4J. That means it's from 1984. And the J is the 10th month. So October 1984 I think...

Thanks for the help and info.
The bike has saturne hx28 rims which judging by the mombat link suggests that it was probably kitted out with an 85 spec.

Could be. Frame produced in the end of 84 so could be 85 specs...
