John’s Bicycle Restorations

Miyata Pro Restoration – Bicycle After Restoration

This is a Miyata Pro in for restoration, I believe a 1984 but don’t take that as absolutely correct.  The frame had some damaged paint in a few areas and a replacement fork, a very nice replacement fork.  On inspection of the frame inside and out the frame had no damage at all.  

The Pro-Miyata is on my top 5 awesome list! It may be my age and era but I absolutely love this era’s Japanese bicycles.  The Miyata received new paint, decals, cables, housings, tires, tubes and a complete restoration of components.  I couldn’t be happier with the results.

The frame stripped photos are stuck on my old lap top that stopped working, I manged to save the photos above before it completely died.  I also built a new powder coat oven with better control during the painting process of the Miyata.  I am thrilled with the results.  The head tube was masked and painted with liquid paint.  The lug cut outs where hand painted.  I love this stuff!!
