    Value of Miyata Pro

    Serial Number K978519

    Superbe, Dia Compe, Sugino, Araya.

    Average condition, wheels are true, needs new cables.

    Sorry for picture quality, my camera isn't working well.

    Index shifting? If, yes, this smaller frame (and those are clinchers, correct? and the aero brakes add to the value as well), I'd say $300-$400 depending on the season, whether the buyer knows what a Miyata Pro is (which means that you have to make an effort describing what this bike is all about) in your (OH) location, if everything works well and the bike is very clean (as it looks like it is).

    Thanks, I bought it as a keeper not a flip (small sizes are harder to find).

    It needs a few things like new cables, pedals, saddle, brake pads. I just didn't want to sink much money into it if it was not worth much. I try not to get to "upside down" for my personal rides in case I need to thin the herd.

    No index shifting and yes those are clinchers. Paint and decals are in much better than average condition. A small amount of surface rust on the skewers and some of the bolts, nothing that souldn't come off with some very fine steel wool and some elbow grease.
