My bike has been stolen!

It’s a red/purple/pink (the light changes the color a lot) 1981 Miyata 1000.

It was stolen early this week from my home near UNM.

It’s a rebuild, and aside from the frame only the seatpost, handlebars and stem are original. The hardware I can remember off-hand is:
Vintage Super Maxxy cranks – have red paint around the logo, but only on the right side
Origin 8 brown leather saddle
Origin 8 chainring
One rim is Alexrims, I don’t remember the other (it’s got frankenwheels)
Gumwall tires
Cane creek brake levers with gum rubber covers instead of black
New Shimano brakes
Blackburn Flea headlight
Go By Bike speedometer
Brown handlebar tape
Missing a handlebar cap
Ancient “Miyata cotterless” crankset nut covers

This bike is(was) my pride and joy. I found the nearly bare frame next to a dumpster, and have spent 3 years making it perfect. It was stolen just a week or two after I finally got it all in perfect working order. If anyone knows anything, PLEASE call me: 505 750 8237

Thanks!
