Here you go; 1986 Miyata One Thousand: Shimano Deerhead/600 equipped, 90% original (front wheel is a replacement). My favourite bikes have 26" wheels and fat knobby tires, but this is a beautiful machine. Made in Japan, no compromise quality - still on it's original tires (which according to Sheldon Brown's website are the only radial bicycle tires ever made) and the seat and grips are original too. It was very dirty when I got it, looks fantastic now (IMHO).
