It's priced at the upper end of what it's worth. Only weak point I see is the rims looks pretty well worn.

Pretty overpriced but it's a nice enough bike so if you like and it fits you could do a lot worse. For something of this caliber I'd expect a total rebuild with the original bars at $300. I sold a similar Miyata for $300 last year but it was completely rebuilt from the bare frame with all new consumables, and even then I was shocked to get that much for it.

With oem bars, 2 sets of 600 calipers and 1 set of levers included, your paying $225-$240 for the bike. Pretty much FMV where I trade.

Thanks for the input guys. I will consider it and I will still keep looking at CL for a better deal or buy this one instead.

EDIT:

The seller brought down the price to $275. Is it a better deal now?
