I have heard of the white/green 1989 TrailRunner but have never seen a Pic... got one?
1981 Voyageur 11.8
1976 KOBE Cobra
Here's my old '83 Three-Ten. I just sold it in February before moving cross-country.
As-bought. Total garage queen. Original radial tires, faded bar tape, etc.
After I was done with it. Gran Compe levers, Cateye bar tape, VO cables.
I cleaned the dirty gold paint out of the Golden Arrow group and the lug lines and re-did it in red.
Got some red jockey wheels fro Velo-Orange also.
Sorry for bombing the thread with so many photos. It was the first bike I did a lot of work on and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out!
Current: '83 Bianchi Special
Sold: '83 Miyata 310, '85 League Fuji
@oldmancolin- you did an outstanding job! The red accent is just great! We never get tired of seeing photos.
My contribution is a 1987 Miyata One Twelve Mixte- 21" size. It was stock down to the tires, and surprisingly has brazed on down tube shifters with Shimano SIS index/friction.
1986 710 I built up a couple years ago.
This was a fun bike - 1984 Terra Runner single speed. Way too small for me though.

A few upgrades never hurt
Here's my old 1981 Miayata 310. I regret selling this one. I replaced the seat because it had a rip in it (I still have it in the parts bin though) and the hoods - everything else was original and not even a scratch on the frame. It even had a gold freewheel to boot. It was a really compact frame and rode as good as any modern bike I've ridden.

To be honest, I don't know anything about this bike other than that I like it. I bought it off the goodwill auction site, and haven't had much time to research it.
Hello. I just picked up a neat Miyata off craigslist and would appreciate any help identifying the year and exact model of the bicycle. Here are some pictures and the details I found. Thank you! Love this forum thread.
Miyata Sally Sport SL-10 GTR 8633 with original Miyata radial tires and a disc brake (not used) on back. (Is this a 1000?)
Serial Number?: Z472238 (I read online that Z could be 1997. True?)
Thank you!!! I also found this link online during my search: Miyata Sally 10 GTR, Aoshima G6-6
A miniature model version of this bike! What does it mean....
Nabbed this 912 today from a relatively local bike guy. He's got hundreds of bikes, thankfully not many in my size.
But I did end up getting another bike in my size along with this one, a RONS Dutch bike of some sort. It had nice enough components and was unique enough that it had to come home with me too...
Anyway, I am stoked to have this Miyata in my stable! Something about the way the script is written out "Nine Twelve" makes it very appealing. At any rate, pic shown are as received this morning. The bike is already torn down to the frame, the frame is polished (looks pretty good considering this pic), and the rest of the parts are ready for cleaning. Based on my research and the s/n H110464 on the bottom bracket, I am pegging this at 1979 or 1980 vintage. I'll start a restoration thread shortly.
