My new/old Miyata 310

So today I sold my 1981 Miyata 110 for a decent profit. "Wish I could of kept them both!"
But I also arranged to pick up another bike on the way home. A Miyata 310! I must say I'm growing pretty fond of these Miyatas. This one is a little lighter as it has aluminum bits and pieces. And I didn't even pay all to much. Already added a new road bike seat. Had to get rid of the old Trek seat on it! Added my pannier rack/bags and ofcourse my blinkers.

What year is the 310? I've got an '85 310 frame ready to build up. Looking forward to it.

cheers, best luck with it!

It is a 1979 year. Very nice smooth riding bike. Definitely can tell the difference between it and the 110. I'm super happy with my upgrade. She gets new handlebar wrap tomorrow.

Wow...so nice you can't even get away with referring to it as a "project bike" -- or we'll think you're just being dramatic!
