This is my 80's Miyata road bike, origianlly a 10 speed but converted to a single speed, soon to be a fixie. I had to cut the spider because the spider also was what the big ring attached too as well as a chainring gaurd thing, so i took a sawzall to it and hacked those off, worked out pretty well. When i have time, prolly over christmas break, I'm going to build it up with a track hub and paint it black and the lugs silver!!

Very cool.

Your planned paint job sounds good too, but the classic Miyata paint looks pretty good.
