    Assuming you know how to use Google you already know the answer. Unless you have a later model 1000(early 90's) which was no longer a touring bike but just a sport bike of no particular merit.

    No assumptions, none at all, he spoke of it last evening. As for the 1990 model.. OK.. if you say so.

    Ha ha ha.

    How about he canned response of:
    'Yet another is this a good touring bike. Search is your friend, blah blah blah..."

    So is there really a bike or are you just playing with us?

    I've got a 1991. What about it make it fail as a touring bike?

    Looking at the catalog page for the 1991 1000 LT -- how is this not a souring bike?

    The bike I am looking at has Suntour Barcons and a Biopace touring triple, STX components (brakes, rd, fd), and some non OE wheels... I figure it is a late eighties model.

    Its a touring bike to the fullest extent, as are ALL Miyata 1000's. The comment about the 90's models not being touring bikes has absolutely no merit whatsoever.

    This is clearly a figment of our mutual minds. When has a Craigslist ad ever had such clear pictures of a bicycle?

    I'm tempted to trade my Subaru for it (It's only a ferry ride and 40 miles away)!

    Back in the day (1985) I bought a Miyata One hundred. There was NO WAY I could afford the One Thousand next to it... oh I wished I could have...

    A couple of years later I bent my fork and it was replaced with a 1000 fork.
    This bike is still going strong, being rebuilt at the moment...

    I love my bike... but am still look in case a 1000 frame in my size turns up In my neck of the woods this is a very rare occurrence.

    65er, why am I suspicious here? For some reason, I find it hard to believe that you don`t know exactly what that model is. Truth be told, I was expecting the first post to be a lead-in to pics of the only factory equipped S.R. triple Miyata in the history of the universe, which you had somehow just discovered behind a barn and bought for $20.

    You got the pics yet, or are they still being developed?
