THE MISTER CYCLE Vintage MIYATA Bicycle
 
Anyone have info on this bike?
The Mister Cycle - 6093 Miyata Racer - Vintage 3 Speed
All original: planned to restoring but no extra time. Head badge says The Mister Cycle Registered Trademark on a metal emblem. Has a Mesinger spring loaded seat / saddle with wear. Complete with the original headlight which is powered by a generator that flips down to make contact with the front wheel. Michelin 28 x 1 1/2 Zigzag made in England. 21" frame. There's obviously some heavy rust and it does need to be restored but rare find.

Where does it say Miyata on it? Rare does not equal valuable. Condition trumps everything.

Given condition with lots of rust, $25. Vintage 3 speeds have minimal value, buyers prefer Raleighs over most other brands.

Is the rear hub Sturmey Archer or Shimano 333?

Rear hub may have a date code on it.

Are you buying or selling? Looks like a basic 3spd that need a lot of elbow grease and a little grease.

If you’re buying you might be able to get it for $20-30 if your selling you should ask $50 and take the first $30 offer.
