1989 Miyata 1400 spline triple butted (new ride)

My buddy ask me if I wanted to trade my Cannondale SR800 I got yesterday for his Miyata 1400.
Both of them have full Shimano 600tri color, the Miyata has a few grades like dura ace headset and bottom bracket.
So I took the trade, I'm not sure how to used these co2 cartridge under frame!
I hope that was a good trade and how do you guys like my new fork on my first sr800?

Yeah, that was an excellent trade. I used to have a '89 Koga-Miyata FullPro with the splined frame.

Seems like a pretty equal trade, they both have a following and tend to be easy sellers. I definitely prefer the miyatas myself and would have taken that trade for sure. Regarding swapping parts I would ride as is on the tricolor all day long after giving the bike an overhaul and confirming parts have life left or not (like chain).
