    i'm looking for a miyata!!

    figured this could go here...

    i'm in search of a miyata 6-- series. 610, 612, 614, 615... i don't care. if anyone sees one for sale(reasonably priced) around NW Ohio or SE Michigan give or take 100 miles, PM me or let me know... i'm about a 59-61 frame size. i'm searching ebay and craigslist to no avail-- and ebay tends to have inflated prices.

    make my dreams come true

    Miyata

    I know it's not what you asked about but, I have a 914 that I would sell.
    I bought it new in '87 or '88 I think.
    It has been sitting in my basement for the past 12 years not being ridden at all.
    I'm not sure of the frame size but it is pretty small.

    I might be interested in it. Could you find the size and how much? I live in Cleveland and can drop down to check it out any time.

    PM me and let me know.

    I don't know how to measure the frame but I think it's a 52.

    I just put air in the tires and took it out for the first time in many years.
    It doesn't look like new but it rides like new.
    Still has the original brake pads!

    I would like to get $200.00 for it.
    Give me a call if your interested.

    Bummer, 52 is a tad too big for me. To measure the size, center-to-center is often used. Measure from the center of the cranks to the center of the top tube along the seat tube.

    I'll measure it when I get a chance. I only have a 29" inseam and it fits me good.

    damn, i would have snatched it up for 200, but it's definitely too small.
    i have a 34" inseam and need a 59-61 inch frame
    keep us posted though, i'm sure someone here would be interested

    Hey JWH, I'm interested in that 914 you have. Would you be down to ship it to CA? Send me a PM.
