Miyata Six Ten, What's it worth?

Picked up this Miyata Six Ten touring bike at a garage sale today. I'd like to get an idea of it's value. Its in very good condition, I just need to clean it up, install new tubes, flip the handlebars and find a correct style seat. Its a chrome-moly double butted frame, with suntour brakes and derailleurs and aluminum rims. I believe it was made in 1983. Says made in Japan on it. Also says Grand Touring.
I'll try to get some pics posted, computer is not cooperating right now.

It is far easier to upload to a photo hosting site and paste the links here using the 3rd icon from the right above.

It's a 1984 and besides the cobwebs it looks ok from the pictures. Lots of enthusiasts on here can give you some guidance.
If I didn't already have two sport tourer type bikes I'd seek a 610 (or even a 210) out. The canti brakes are a plus.

Well, I got it all cleaned up, put on new tires and tubes, and found a Miyata saddle on ebay. It rides great. Its a 63.5 cm frame and has Dia-Compe canti brakes, Suntour derailleurs, quick release Araya aluminum rims. Here are some "after" pics. Miyata by jay19812 | Photobucket

Nice bike. If that seat is the correct height for you the bike's way too big. If you are sellng raise it up a few inched and the bike will look much better.

Like another mentioned, toss the saddle up before taking pics to sell. Have it slightly higher than the stem it about 4 fingers above the top of the seat tube.

610 is a nice touring bike, based on the one I saw and from what I've read.
Those brake levers can't be original, hopeless with turkey levers wouldn't have been on this level of a bike. Might end to look that up to confirm and just be aware of the potential issue if you go to sell and the buyer isn't thrilled with turkey levers.
