    Good points and thanks for the replies. Seems like it should not be the dumbest or most dangerous thing I've done. Future People: feel free to reply if you disagree. :thumb:

    Fit would be hit or miss. If you can find another cheap frame from the same era, you may have better luck.

    I've seen it done both ways in production bikes, but again, I am asking about retrofitting. Is one inherently stronger than the other?

    Adding through mount rack eyelets

    Could one drill through a seatstay and weld or braze an eyelet into the hole? I am thinking no integrity would be lost due to the threaded eyelet filling in the hole. I have seen this done on many...

    I've seen one, maybe two, 18 wheelers with road bikes behind the cab. Makes me happy when I see it. Stay safe!

    Way I understand it...Miyata was the Japanese company whose bikes were imported to the U.S. Koga-Miyata was the importer for Europe and continues to import them to this day.

    Beautiful Cresta! I had one once but sold it to get an '85 Trek 520. If mine had looked like yours currently does, I would have kept it!

    I have one and love it. I tried to mount some Schwalbe Smart Sams in 40 or 45 and they wouldn't fit. I want to say they were 45s, though. I have some tubeless hutchinsons on there now.

    Nice! I picked up a '72 in blue a while back. It had been modified over the years, and the paint is rough (only a head badge left). Is yours all original?

    Yeah, the corrosion doesn't hurt it quite as badly as it does steel. You could remove bubbled paint, polish to a shine, and wax if you didn't feel like using touch up paint.

    I had one of those Crestas, but I think mine was a year earlier. Nice frame. Pretty slack angles, though. Go ride it off road and make your decision.

    These come in 700x40, or you can run them in 29x1.75. :)
