Very good use of drama there. Where was the photo taken?

Nice bike, too .

I'm thinking you really like those Koga Miyatas, eh?

Intron,

Koga built it with Dura Ace somewhere early eighties. What year exactly is something I still have to figure out. It is pretty much original. I took the bell off.

Size: You have a good eye There is a sticker on the frame that says 58cm, but it defo isn't 58. 56 c-t sounds more plausible.

Wino Ryder,

I uploaded my pics on www.flickr.com, not through the site. Put the hyperlink between the 'insert image' tags and you are done!

Here I have two more pics of particular frame features. The 1st is showing the cut out 'M' of Miyata the 2nd shows one of the Shimano dropouts:





The cableguides on top the bracket are Shimano too.

Another roadbike in my collection, the '91 GentsRacer Carbolite:


In the foreground a SkyExpension (Elevation 12,000 in the US, Elev12k ) can be recognized.
