1988 Miyata 312

Gotta love Springtime. I've been on a little buying spree lately. Here is my latest pickup in "as found" condition.

It is a Starlight Black 1988 Miyata 312. This is my first Miyata, my first bike with in frame cabling, and my first Bio-Pace equipped bike. It came with a flick stand and a Blackburn rack. That Avenir saddle must go.

And, isn't that the weirdest looking bar tape? Flies?

It is Splined Triple butted cro-mo with Mangalight fork. Under the sawdust the paint appears to be metalflake, too.

Hopefully no one tries to pee on your bars! "Flies" motif is a new one...

How much did you snag this one for? There is a Miyata 310 at the co-op in town, wondering what a fair price is for it.
