Miyata One-Twelve Single Speed

4 Dec

For sale 53cm Miyata One-Twelve from the early 80’s, this frame is lugged and triple butted steel for a smooth and supple ride. All of the braze ons are present and in good shape, bosses for the water bottle, brake line runs across the top and has eyelets front and rear for fenders. This frame appears to have seen very few miles in its first life as the paint is a 9 out of 10 with no scratches or dings, the decals are in perfect shape, hard to believe with a 20+ year old bike. Color is a darker antique bronze with red and orange logos. Below is a list of components:

  • Headset Tange Levin was just cleaned, packed with fresh grease and adjusted to perfection—-smooth!
  • Brand new Shimano BB sealed, and bolted to that is a pair of Signature cranks 170mm with a new GT chain ring that is 47t, powered by a new KMC Z chain and a new Shimano 16t freewheel. Pedals are a new pair of VP ultralight track pedals.
  • Wheel set is a pair of lightly used Swift medium V’s (32mm deep) 32h rims laced to a pair of formula flip/flop hubs, front is black and the rear silver and I just replaced the cartridge bearrings, stainless spokes with new tubes and new CST HP 23’s pumped up to 110 p.s.i.
  • Brake set is a pair of standard issue Shimano side pull single pivot brakes front and rear with new set of Kool Stop Thinline pads, stops on a dime!
  • Laprade seat post 26.8mm with a new Velo Origin8 saddle, comfy.
  • Nitto 1 to 1 1/8 stem converter with Bontrager 100mm stem and a pair of flop and chop bars with new Specialized in-line cross pulls, new cables and bar wrap and housing to round out this beauty.
Couple of different styles to this bike, forst went with riser bars then finally ended up with a pair of flop and chop with in line brake pulls.
