Miyata 912

Was wondering what a 1984 vintage Miyata would be worth. Might buy from a guy who wants to sell for 200. Canít post a pic but itís in good condition and everything has been replaced.

Thanks yall

Main thing is whether the bike fits you. Do you know what size you would ride? The Miyata brand is well thought of and the 912 was a very nice bike in the day. Still a nice bike! I have a Miyata 312 and it is currently set up as a fixed gear. It will likely be the last bike I own before I finally cannot ride anymore. The frame is excellent, splined, triple-butted chromolly. Rides like a dream.

If that bike is in good shape, paint is decent and little rust, $200.00 is a good deal.

I actually went ahead and bought it and love it so far. Got it for 180. Iím 6í1 bike is 58 cm but seat is raised a bit so fits pretty well. Guy told me 58 cm is the biggest the Miyatas ran. They all had pretty small frames. But itís fast and smooth and loving it so far! Was worth it

Glad you are happy but Miyata made larger frames, including a 60 and 63cm.

You made a good buy. Before you ride it too far, make certain that everything is lubed properly. Don't take the seller's word for it, check for yourself. You will enjoy the bike! Congrats.
