Miyata 610

Found this Miyata 610, possibly an 83 or 84 from what I can tell in brochures. It's $100 on the app LetGo, but I noticed the drop bars were swapped for flat bars and seems like the cantilever brakes were replaced with a lesser quality pair. I was wondering if anyone could spot any other changes from the original Miyata 610.

I was thinking of offering the guy $60 or $70 since it's likely even less original than he said as well as being sold with a thrashed seat (he said seat is just a cover at the moment). Hopefully, he drops to at least $80. Am I pushing my luck or worth the effort?

Even with the bar setup and none original wheels it's still a great buy the frame set is worth more than $100. It looks like it would be pretty easy to put a set of drop bars back on it since it appears to have the original stem and brake levers.

The wheels may also have been spray painted black. If you're gonna try and haggle, do it in person, not over emails or texts.

I think you're lucky this is on an app. If it was on CL at this price it would have already sold.

I'd have bought this bike at $100 and I sure as heck don't need it

Definitely think I'll be grabbing this bike no matter what when I get to see it Monday. Seems like I definitely scored, so I'm pumped. At about 5'9", does the frame seem like it may be a good fit?
