I sold one just like it, similar condition for $210 early last summer.

- But I am not sure that I could get $100 for it now. (The weather and economic factors are driving prices through the basement.) YMMV.

I just sold a 312 for $150.00 real quick. I bought it at garage sale for $50 and turned it over within 24 hours to a student at MSU. I think you could actually get a bit over $200 for it if you wanted to sit on it for awhile. I personally like the quick return on my money.

Miyatas seem to be pretty popular here in SoCal. The 310's I see usually list at $200-$225. I sold a 1984 310 2 weeks ago for $240. It had been upgraded with 700c Mavic rims and had 105 Golden Arrow bits. Nice riding bike. Sold it to a girl who said she didn't want a really high end bike to ride at school. I hope she has a good lock anyway.

I see bikes like that listed for $400, but I don't think they sell because I see the same ads over and over again. $125-$200 sounds about right. Though I think that is still too much, but that's just me. An Ex-Miyata fan.

The Miyata labelled seat is a nice find, and otherwise it looks very clean. When bikes were moving, $250 easy. Now, I don't know.

Looks like a small frame, 50 cm or 52 cm? Would be a nice ride for a young coed. I sold a Miyata 210 last summer to a young woman for $165.00. It was a beautiful gold color and had 18 speeds. Would have kept it, but at 54 cm it was too short for me. I normally ride 58 cm.

I like Miyatas very much, haven't seen a junky one yet.

decent miyatas (cromo, not high ten) sell closer to $200 - 350 in NYC.
