While over my brothers looking for an old Schwinn he had (ended up being junk) we found this Miyata, what do you guys/girls think of it? I plan on fixing it up for my wife as the Panasonic I got her needs forks and tires and tubes and so on.

Wow, very cool find. Check out this website (click on the Miyata links): http://comics.sakura.ne.jp/cycle/cy00e.htm

I don't see yours, though there is an Eddy Merckx decaled mixte. Miyata put together some pretty awesome touring machines.

That's a Miyata Commuter-L, circa 1981/1982. Quite a nice commuter for the era, considering the CrMo main tubes, aluminum rims and dual racks.
