Miyata 1000 frame and fork on CL San Francisco: priced OK?

Hi All,

Here's a Miyata 1000 frame, size 50cm. Do you think $200 is a fair price for the Bay Area? Frame looks to be in good condition. I've emailed the owner and hope to see the frame tomorrow.

Thanks!

Price is reasonable for a Miyata 1000. I would buy it.

It does show that even in an insane market, buyers tend to scoop up complete bikes. This can make framesets a good deal.

+1. That's a later model with all the braze-ons. If it's your size I'd get in the car.

+1 I'd also have to agree here. It also looks to be in fairly good condition, and for a holy grail bike, it's not too much to pay
