Miyata one twelve freebie!

I was just given a miyata 112 tonite!
From what I can tell from this old links pic its all original except for the seat.

The paint scheme is identical and a LBS from Ma. decal tells it was sold in 1995.
It's filthy though. Gonna take a lot of elbo grease to clean it up. The paint job is pretty rough too but i think it might be a good little commuter project and heck.it was free!
I was also given three other bike which includes a old Schwinn world tourist featuring a upright position ride.

Oops! Read that LBS decal wrong. Its the Address, not the yr.
So I research the serial no. And it's either a 1986 or a 1998 model. Due to the fact that I can't decide if it starts with a O or a Q.
Figuring 98 cuz the downtube indexed shifters. Don't think those were around yet in 86.
Either way miyatas are good bikes I hear. I'm quite pleased.

If your bike is identical to the one in the picture that you posted, it is from 1988. Compare yours to the one on the right side of the picture below. Posted at the bottom is a spec sheet to compare to.
