    Anyone familair with Miyata

    I recently came into possession of this frame and I can't figure out
    what this is...I can't find hardly any info on this brand on the net, and apparently
    is not distributed in the U.S. yet and I can't read Japanese

    It looks like a tour bike..it has 2 sets of bracket holes for water bottle cages,
    and a bracket at the back to possibly hold an airpump.

    I saw some info on Sheldons website, but I would like to I.D. this bike,
    perhaps he knows...just guessing from the numbers stamped on the
    bottom the last two are 97 so that could be the year.

    QS36797

    57 cm frame

    68 mm BB

    Any Ideas ??

    Post this over in the Classic & Vintage forum. T-Mar hang out over there and he's the Miyata Guru. Post the serial number and a picture and he'll tell you everything you need to know.
