    Mine was made about 80 frames after that one, but has a different seat tube decal color (pewter) and pewter-colored head tube. Odd.
    1981 Trek 710s are great bikes. I'm a big fan.

    I have a '85 Miyata 1000. It is a terrific bike. I am modernizing it as well with brifters, new 130mm wide wheels, 9-speed.
    I think it's worth it.

    Good luck!

    I have not been the area you discuss, but had a great experience riding in the Limburg region two years ago. It was flat, rural, intimate and thoroughly enjoyable. Good luck!

    I have a set of modern Ultegra hubs laced to Open Pros. They have been trouble free. I have 28mm tires on them and it serves on a commuter bike. Great value in my opinion.

    Miyata 1000s are great bikes. I have one (1984) and the frame fits me very well. The stock components are excellent.

    My first road bike was a Motobecane Super Mirage, the exact model year you have and one size larger. I bought it in 1983 and have fond memories of it.
    Ride and enjoy it!

    I believe you need a special tool. When I had this problem, I went to Wright Bros. in Seattle, WA - only place I could find.
    Perhaps an old shop near you has one.

    If the B-17 works for you, why change?

    I have two B-17 that I like. I also use a Brooks Swallow, a SMP Glider and a SMP TRK (on a Miyata 1000). I'm happy with all of them.

    Like others, I would say Schwinn. It exemplifies America's manufacturing history of the past decades.
    Then Trek. It exemplifies America's present.
