That Miyata still possesses much of its original components, thankfully. Brakes are dual pivot Shimano 105s, but @Dfrost spotted a pair of Superbe short reach calipers and now those will be used. Makeshift strap-on fenders and a super muddy rear hub/wheel, in addition to the clutter and dirt. Poor thing lived a good then weird life. I'm finishing a Trek up for the Major Taylor people as well, and our Recycle and Reuse guy said after that I could work on the Pro Miyata. T'would be an honor! He laughed. I am so excited! I will be bringing wax, compound, and aluminum polish for this. This is where I really like working for free--a great project, refurb/restore, with a great result and a very quality bike back on the road, and of course a good chunk of change for Bike Works to keep them going. At some point I will have to get a Pro/Team/Aero Miyata (or a Koga Miyata!) in the 63cm size because...just look at it!

Also note the black cylindrical fittings on the gear wires beneath the down tube. These enable you to disconnect the front ends of the gear wires from the rear ends when taking the frame apart without affecting adjustment settings.

A bike with these S&S couplers is not so much a folder as a take-apart.

sopobikes.org They put 500.00 on it when it came in. You can usually get them down from marked prices. It's in very good condition.

Following up on the little Panasonic I've been seeing over there, I noticed a sticker on the top tube that says "Custom Painted by Ueki," possibly a reference to the company's custom paint program from the '80s, PICS (Panasonic Individual Custom System). I sold their bikes during that time but had forgotten about PICS and have never seen one of them to my knowledge. The only PICS pics (so to speak) that I could find online show a "Custom Painted by Panasonic" sticker, so this may be an anomaly or it might be a little prize. I also found out that the anticipated price for this machine is about $150. Frameset alone would be "much less" if they choose to part it out and if they get around to working on it the price will rise. Buy now!
PICS.JPG



Meanwhile, in the back room a Raleigh Technium 531 showed up but it appears to have been run into something and straightened. You can see ripples in the top and down tubes several inches back from the head tube, not your typical front-ender. Shame.

Here's a Dahon folder that looks pretty good.

And a little Centurion Sport DLX, not a fancy bike but has all alloy parts on a basic steel frame.

And on the parts front, here's a twisted-spoke attempt on a cheapo tandem's front wheel.

Yeah... one wonders if the differences in how the frame was constructed, as compared to a conventional steel lugged frame, has pushed the yield point further back along the length of the tubes. It's interesting too that the bond didn't fail before the tube yielded (good to know).

I don't recall but maybe those have a long internal sleeve that comes back as far as that wrinkle.

I received the Trek 950/959 from Colorado tonight thanks to a BF member. It was dark by the time I got it out of the box as it was incorrectly delivered to the local Walmart instead of to my address. All I have tonight is a crappy basement pic. The bike is pretty dirty and needs a good cleaning. Crankset is Super Record, RD, FD are both Nuovo Record, Shifters also NR (I think), Brake calipers and levers are Modolo Speedy. Bottom bracket is Campy. Headset is Zues, which I thought was cool.

It was listed as a 959, but the serial number only shows the 950 series. The 959 was all Dura-Ace in the Trek catalogs. The 950/959 was only offered in this color in 1981 and 1981.5. My serial number is early in the 1982 run. Does that make it a 1981.5?
