1988 Miyata 110

Hello,

I picked up this Miyata 110 last summer with plans of flipping her but never got around to it. She ended up needing a little more work than I thought but it was really fun fixing up the bike. I was just sort of wondering if I had added any value so would anyone like to take a guess as to what she may be worth? I regreased the pivots and adjusted the breaks, new tires and tubes, new seat post, etc.

The components are Araya 27" rims, Shimano Light Actions shifters, Shimano SIS front and rear derailleurs (7 speed), Dia Compe 500 Brakes and Aero Levers, Sakae SX Cranks, and "Champion" bars.

Thanks!

PS excuse the pedals haha

I don't think the buyer would care so much if the seat post is new, just that it has one. If I were you I would lower the saddle and correct the angle.

It looks really clean and the color combo is nice, IMO. Here in SoCal it would go for $200 fairly quickly and more if a person was patient.
It would help if the buyer didn't know the difference between 27" wheels and 700c. Looks like about a 50cm frame so the more I look at how clean it is and a premium for a small frame, I say $250. I will ignore the pedals. Haha.
PS. If you are going to list it on CL take some pictures outdoors away from the clutter. It seems you know what parts to shoot.

Thanks for the great info! I will do all of the above. I definitely need to get some pics outside, this weather on the East Coast is killing me though. Stupid rain!

+1 Lower seat and level it out.

Desirable size, $225 +/- around here. I would replace the pedals with something more appropriate if you have them.
