miyata 1000

because I am a nice guy here's a link for one. Be aware that the fork is not OME. No one is bidding. Don't know why. Looks good to me though. FWIW It's not mine nor anyone I know. I would bid but want an orig front fork. Person responded to my email quickly stating that it has eyelets at the drops on the front fork. Have at it.

Maybe people are not bidding because bidding in advance makes no sense? My guess is that there will be a fair amount of bidding in the last few minutes. Beautiful bike, Im sure it will make somebody happy very happy at whatever price it fetches!

I don't reckon its 60cm, look at the size of the head tube.

I'd want the original forks too, and I'd want the original rack... after market racks NEVER fit as well as an original.

It's the size that turned me off - there was incredible 56cm NOS Trek 720 frame that sold today - wow was it nice - wow was the price high.

I think those bikes are great BUT way over priced.

I agree, looks like a 58 but if it went for 200 and decent shipping it would make a great commuter. With or without the fork
