First post; hello C&V! I've lurked here a long time and thought I should come out of the shadows.
Last weekend I snagged a Miyata 1000 from what I'm fairly certain is 1986. Despite all that is written about Miyata 1000s, there doesn't seem to be a lot of info out there about this year, nor pictures for me to draw inspiration from
(I actually was able to find quite a lot more on my 1985 Miyata 210)
I wasn't planning to take it apart and overhaul until the off-season, but, well... I had a wrench in my hand and thought, "what the hey?" There are some spots of rust, especially in the head tube and stays, as well as some "flaking" where I think the clear coat is coming up (pictured at the fork).
I don't have a lot of bike experience generally nor experience dealing with finish specifically, but I do have an assortment of products I've picked up after reading threads about it (#0000 steel wool, various grades of sandpaper, evaporust, cleaning wax, scratch remover, etc. etc. etc.). What do you all recommend? Thanks in advance!
