Miyata Lemans Campa

I looked through the online catalogs, but I did not find this model.
Some Campagnolo, probably derailleurs.
Anybody knows more about this bike?
I hope I will get more pics tomorrow

I appreciate where you are coming from, given the seat stay attachment to the seat lug. However, this feature was not used on the Pro Miyata until 1986, by which time it also had a 2nd set of bottle bosses, a pump peg, a chrome fork and chrome drive side chain stay. This bicycle has none of those features.

Looking at the picture, the seat stays appear to be bent slightly backwards above the brake bridge. I'm wondering if the stays were originally attached to the side of the lug and that the frame has been modified and repainted.

Alternately, it could be another Miyata manufactured, brand, such as Univega or a foreign market Miyata.

Brake levers are Suntour Superbe?

I believe that is a track bend in the bars.

I'd be worried about the frame alignment. The seat stays definitely don't look right when you project a straight line along them. They don't go out gradually either, so I doubt it's a focal length issue. I'd be checking this out with a length of string or a 3' level.

If the alignment is out as T-Mar mentions--nothing. Don't buy it. Otherwise, it could probably fetch between $200 - $400 depending on rim wear, leather saddle wear, and drivetrain wear.

Most important--does it FIT you. Don't drive 3 hours to find out that it's too big/too small--ask for measurements of the seattube and top tube, and include a link with instructions so he/she knows how to measure.
