I don't think this guy knows what he has - a '84/'85 Miyata 1000. But somebody's currently willing to spend $0.99 on it so far. Local pickup only in Mentor, Ohio It looks like a perfect fit for me too
Oops, thanks for adding the link.
The 1000 has me staring, but all I can remember is running lower pressures on Vittoria 32's to enjoy it unloaded. The ride is not that forgiving without a load on it. I never rode mine loaded before selling it, but I imagine that's when the frame shines through.,,,,BD

That's cheeky. No reserve on the eBay auction. Up to $16.50!Originally Posted by sonatageek
I have a feeling this might be a "Cinelli" because that's what's written on the stem. Still, it looks pretty cool for $300.
CINELLi RACING BIKE - $300 (new berlin)
^ Interesting frame and a nice set of parts. If it was close I'd check it out.
Re: "Cinelli racing bike. Kind of a Frankenbike with all those mismatched parts (I love the campy "detailer"). Like someone found a frame and threw on whatever they had laying around. Look at the relaxed geometry, multiple eyelets, the canti brakes - something is telling me "touring bike." I might pay $100 if the frame was in good shape.

Re: the Klein - it is a sale for the Campy parts - free frame included. They must have upgraded from the original 8-speed Ultegra to 10-speed Daytona in 2000/2001 (or gotten them used even later). If the running gear and the frame is in good shape, that's not a bad a deal for a true Klein (not a Trek). I've seen few bikes with better quality paint jobs.
Re: Cinelli "cross bike" - that makes a lot more sense with the knobbies on there. I almost made a cross bike out of my dad's old Gitane TdF, but was lazy and eventually thought better of it. (She's going to be restored properly now.) Trust me, I'm a believer that it's the engine that gets you across the line, not the cost of the bike, but unless someone can prove it's a Cinelli or some other high quality frame, $300 is way outta line.
