    Miyata Touring Bike ID: Help Please

    Hi. I picked this up at the thrift store today for $50. Can anyone tell me what year and model it is? Serial #J286657. Suntour Mountech RD Cyclone FD, Suntour power ratchet shifters, Front & Rear racks, SKS fenders and Dia Compe Cantilever brakes.

    1981 model 1000 with a replacement rear derailleur. Nice acquisition.

    And I was going to suggest something in the 1980 to 1982 range. Beautiful touring bike. They don't make nice bikes like these anymore.
