Mint 1989 Miyata 1000 LT

I've been fortunate to own many Miyata 1000s but have never come across one as new/mint as this one.

From what I was told, it was only used for one 50km trip in 1990 one summer and stowed away in the garage. I plan on giving it a full overhaul and fresh grease. Everything is stock, including the original Vettagel saddle. I love hearing about the stories on what it was like obtaining one of these back in the day and it seems even back then it had a large following.

What do you think this could fetch for once it's all cleaned up and tuned in a Canadian market? The Radial tires are still in like-new condition and show no signs of wear or age. The only thing that needs to be replaced are the brake pads.
