Absolutely Gorgeous 1988 Miyata Three Twelve
All Questions and Comments are Welcome!! All Credible offers Accepted All Unreasonable Offers Considered. This is a Beautifully restored 1988 Miyata Three Twelve that has been completely disassembled every nut bolt bearing cleaned polished meticulously reassembled to be a creamy smooth running vintage machine! To begin with the frame was taken through a 3 step process restoring protecting the paint's original luster. The frame is built from Miyata's own "Splined Triple-Butted Chrome Molybdenum" tubing and Yes Miyata actually had their own tubes drawn as opposed to using someone else's. Next each individual component was completely disassembled cleaned polished lubricated where applicable and reassembled for optimum performance. Lastly the bike was reassembled with only the most professional care and precision so that you may enjoy 1 of the nicest vintage rides you ever had under you.

The seat post was upgraded to a Shimano 600 post in Excellent Used Condition which I hand polished to a beautiful shine and after swapping out all the spoke nipples I took the wheels to my local wheel building guru to have them trued and dished to perfection! As I mentioned earlier all other components were removed completely disassembled cleaned polished - by hand and reassembled. This bike is immaculate! Well that's not entirely true. It is 32yrs old. It does have a couple scraps here and there but take a terrific look at the pics blow'em up it's still in exceptional condition.
