Great deal on ebay: Miyata 210 for $425

Hello everyone,

I've been lurking around the CV forum for a while, and I just couldn't resist posting this great find. It's a pretty nice Miyata 210 for only $325 + 100 shipping. But hurry, the auction ends on Sunday. Surprisingly, no one's jumped on it yet.

Seriously though, this did make me feel a lot better about my $75 210 in similar condition. Some of you guys find the best deals, and I was beginning to think that $75 might have been a bit on the high side until I saw this.

Well, it's hard to tell from the photos, but that bike does have the rare $300 Campagnolo C-Record aero kickstand that never even made it into the catalogs.

I have one the next size larger, set up for 18 speeds (3x6) with downtube shifters, two bottle cage mounting points, cantilever brakes and a rack (sorry, no C-record aero kickstand ), that you could have for $325.00 delivered. It's a nice, pretty metallic light blue color.

I thought Miyatas were convertibles. There was a guy at work that drove a Miyata.

It costs $25.00 less to ship it to Spokane from your place.

It better not be the Brooklyn Bridge, because I purchased that from the owner when I was there back in 1996. I have the original deed in my filing cabinet under "B" for bridges. I got it for $1200, but I'd be willing to sacrifice it for $950. PM me if interested.

PM me. I definitely want to protect my bridge. As you may know it's over a hundred years old!

Your laughing but there was a lawsuit over the name. The car originaly had a 'Y' in the spelling. Miyata Bicycle sued to have it changed due to the fact that Miyata Bicycle produced cars in the past.
