cb400bill, is that the $12 Cutter saddle/bar tape combo from backcountry.com? I ordered one too, also in white. Good quality stuff but I don't know what bike to put it on. I think it will be sitting...

This seems like more of a "hot rod" thread, so I guess it's the perfect spot to show my 1987 Panasonic DX5000. There is a long, long story to this frame. I will try and give the short version:

+1 on the Regal. I used to own one... good saddles. Not as comfortable as a (real) Brooks, but comfortable and stylish nonetheless.

Nice Nishiki. I had a somewhat bottom of the line Olympic model and was impressed at how comfortable it was and how well it handled. I had to get rid of it because it was a touch too big for me....

I wish you had a pic of the head lugs there, but the component group is identical to what came on my 1983 Univega Gran Premio, very similar to a Miyata 1200.
