That is a great score looks to be in really nice shape although that could just be all the work you did.  I picked up a Miyata 912 about a year ago at a garage sale and I have really enjoyed fixing it up and riding it.

Enjoy your Miyata

    Check out what I picked up at the police auction a couple of weeks
    ago. A 1983 Miyata Twelve Hundred!!! SCORE!!!! It was the only
    thing at the auction worth bidding on and I made sure to take it
    home. I think that I saved it from some hipster who would have turned
    it into a fixie.

    Things I had to replace:
     
    -- Saddle
    -- Cables
    -- Bar Wrap
    -- Rear Tire
    -- Handlebars (old ones are fine but 38cm is too narrow for me)
     
    Up next...I just picked up a 1977 Fuji S10-S that is in great shape.
