Miyata 215 ST

I got this Miyata 215 ST as a part of a deal I could not refuse. It's real clean and from the lack of rim wear, barely ridden. The saddle and handle bar "foam" have disintegrated. The "vintage" 27" tires are holding air. I was original interested in it to steal the crankset, but its 175mm, which is surprising for a 21" bike. Any ideas about value as is vs. ready to ride vs. selling the frame?

It is not just a road bike, it is a touring bike so you have a specific audience that covet these. Not being one of the holy Grail vintage tourers means it won't be a huge amount but enough that you should not part it. If it had a Brooks saddle and bar end shifters parting it would be more tempting.

For what is worth if I didn't have a touring bike and needed one I would be very happy to pay $200 for that bike. As I have 3 temptation would start creeping in at $100
