I posted my 615 the day I got it a page back, and here it is with a Brooks and gold bar tape. It'll probably stay essentially like this for a while. I may add a front rack and fenders later...

Thanks! And thanks for replying in general--I was beginning to think I might have somehow turned it into the ugliest bike on earth after nobody replied for a couple of days, ha ha. It feels really comfortable, too.

Thought I would post this up in the Miyata thread. I was planning on selling this but I made the mistake of riding it. It is a very enjoyable experience.

Due to what I've read about the smiles Miyatas put on their owner's faces, I (rather impulsively) picked up a near-mint 1987 912 a couple of days ago. Since these pics were taken, I've put on a black B-17, some Vittoria Randonneur tires and some black cork bar tape, but this beauty was all original, even down to the tires!

I picked up this Miyata Shredder mountain bike a few months ago. The bike is circa 1990. It was filthy when I got it but cleaned up real nice. It's a really nice bike weighing in at a reasonable 26-27lbs, not bad for an MTB. The frame is triple butted chromoly, Tange as I recall. The components were Deore 500LX. The bars are Ritchey OEM. I rode it a little and it's a very nice rider with a really LONG stem. It has since gone to another owner, and he flipped it on CL so I've lost track of it.

Yes, it does appear to have been a 1990 but the tubing was not Tange. Miyata made their own butted tubesets and they were very good.

Yes, that's correct. As soon as I read your post I recognized the error. Thanks,

Heres mine that I found in the morning today, all it needed was air in the tires, and some small adjustments, a nice ride to me anyway.

My Miyata 912

Attached are photos of my Miyata 912--converted to a fixed gear. It is a nice, stiff ride! I'm also working on building up a 1981 Miyata 1000.
