I love the Miyata Elevation MTB series. Been trying to snag one for years. Always a day late.

I've had a couple of them over the years and have kept this 1987 model. They were a special edition with some unique gold and black components, but the frames were the same for the other models. I...

700c, rim brake, 1" suspension forks are almost impossible to acquire. That frame was never intended to have suspension anyways. I'd keep it rigid.

I would leave well enough alone as a rigid & see how it rides first. It may very well be just fine as is with the replacement fork that's on it.

As to the suspension fork, I agree with the above...

That fork is almost certainly not original due to the spacer used under the headset threaded cap. So if it rides "weird", it may not have the right offset. New forks are certainly not hard to come...
