Like the Camaro you wanted in high school, the bike geek version from my bike shop era - the '82 Miyata Pro - this one spotted on eBay. And Holy Suntour Superbe Batman, this one is a keeper. Appears to be the garage queen with little use or wear. Sweet.
Alas, 63cm frame way too big for me, so no need to explain to the family why I need a vintage Miyata hanging in the garage. This one going in the $790 - $990 range, not exactly chump change. Curious to watch the bidding action over the next few days.
I'll just admire from afar, pics borrowed from eBay listing...
I'll keep my eBay search alive. I'd like to score just a clean frame set - as to not feel guilty pulling off vintage parts - then replace with something along the lines of modern Ultegra or Chorus. Mixture of Old 'N' New, that be a very cool steed indeed, standing out in a sea of modern carbon. True?
