Miyata One Ten SP

Can anyone explain the difference (if any) between a Miyata One Ten and a One Ten SP? A casual google search turns up nothing. Just curious, as I build up a One Ten SP frame into a theft-resistant commuter for my niece. It's probably a 1981, and I assume that the frame is hi-ten. But I was a little bit surprised that it takes a 26.4 seatpost--I'd have expected a 25.4 That would seem to be some thin-walled hi-ten.

A Miyata 110SP would be a 1982 model, though it may have been manufactured in late 1981. Basically it was an upgraded (i.e. SPecial) version of the 110. According to my 1982 literature the differences were aluminum versus steel rims, Sun Tour AR versus SunTour Seven derailleurs, a self centering feature on the Dia-Compe 500 brakes and artificial suede versus vinyl handlebar tape. The frame is spec'd as Miyata CrMo with hi-tensile forks and presumably hi-tensile stays. Since there is no mention of butting, assume plain gauge. Normally, I would expect a 26.6-26.8mm seat post with this tubing and in this case the specs actually mention 26.6mm. Here are the specs, in case I overlooked something.

Thanks, T-Mar. I love it that Miyata made a deluxe version of their cheapest bike. But then, I love almost everything about all Miyatas.

The cheapest bike still has a CrMo main frame...

Yeah, that's pretty cool. But I wish I could get my hands on some of that "aritficial" suede tape. Maybe they meant "artisinal?"

If you follow my posts, you're already aware that Miyata is my favourite of the mass produced, 1980s brands. However, they did offer lower models. Circa 1983-1984 they added the model 90, initially with a carbon-manganese frame and a Sport-10, initially with a hi-tensile frame. There was also sporadic cataloguing of various children's and commuter models. Finally, there was the unicycle line. However, the low point was probably 1987 with the Triton, Nimbus and Victor sports models. The latter two were both hi-tensile and samples I've seen were contract manufactured by Dosdsun of Taiwan. I bring this up because a Victor surfaced recently on the forums and the OP thought it might be a 912.
