I need appraisal and possibly identification for this Miyata road bike

I have a feeling this is a 900 series but if anyone has an idea of what model this is or how much it's worth, please share! Thank you.

Looks like a 914. Rear wheel is a replacement. Picture taken on the wrong side; can't tell much about the parts. Safe to assume it's probably Shimano 600. Price depends on location but $200 is a good starting point especially if you don't have to put any work into it.

Ahh yeah, i did some research it did turn out looking like a 914. I'm from the bay area California and bikes are quite popular here. I was planning to offer 150 for it. Thanks for the info though!

The frame features and decals are consistent with a 1989 Miyata 914. In addition to the rear wheel, the owner has also installed clipless pedals. The bicycle is worth a lot more than $150 in that market.

Check the spacing of the rear stays and the OLD of the rear wheel. Pretty sure there's either a stretch going on, or a coldset. Potential for a frame alignment issue, but nothing that can't be easily fixed with proper tools.

If he'll take $150 for it, jump.
