Miyata info please

Can someone identify this Miyata. Seller off craigslist said it was a '70s 12 speed road bike. This is the only pic there is. They want $150 and says its been kept inside. Any help would be great as I would not want to pass up a good deal. I hope it was a higher end bike for its day.

It could be an 80's Miyata 310 perhaps?

Looks well kept. Someone should be able to ID that downtube sticker. I'd say buy it at $150.

I think bike_forever is right, 1984 310. Good deal at $150

Was the 310 a racer or road bike? I'm curious as I want a good zippy steel ride.

Now you know the number, this is easy:
Miyata 310 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Miyata catalogue calls it semi pro, so its light and zippy but not as light as a team bike. Fine for a fun ride.

. I dug a little deeper ,and if it is older than an '84, then the forks are hi-tensil steel. That would be the only bad thing I can find. I can get a look at it today after work. Thanks for the replies so far everyone..

It looks to be an '84 and it does have hi-ten forks, but I personally don't think that's a big deal. It is a nice sporty bike. Good build quality as most Miyatas were along with shimano 105 components according to the catalog.

BTW, catalog says 25 lbs for the 23" frame, not too shabby.

I sold one of these to a friend's friend for a deal at $125.00! He is over the moon with it! $150.00 is a good price!

so, did you end up getting it?

even if it is hi-ten, still worth $150 in my book. assuming its in as good as condition irl as it shows in the pic.

if it came w/ reflectors on it then it was made for the general public to ride on streets in traffic not professional racing..

looks decent enough for the cash.

$150 is a good price. I recently sold an '86 in very good condition for $230.
