1978 Koga Miyata Gent's Touring

I got this bike from my dad who bought it back in 1978 (original bill and garanty certificate are still there ). I am currently cleaning the whole thing and will mount the original front rack with head light and the original Bluemes Club Special fenders. This picture also doesnt show the original orange saddlebag (empty though) and the ugly fender is long trashed.



Just wondering what one of this is worth. I am not intending to sell it, because it is sort of heritage right now It is completely stock and original as it was in 1978. I changed the tires now, but still have the old Wolber W20's.

For more pictures and info about the parts please take a look at this blogpost I made about this beauty.

Frame: High Tensile 1024 butted tubes
Hubs: Shimano HC-110 (high flange)
Rims: Mavic Module 3
Crankset: SR (I presume?) with SR Royal LA-50 chain wheels and crank arms
Derailleurs and shifters: Shimano 600 line (datestamps '76 en '77-ers)
Brakes: Shimano Tourney with quickrelease and dual extension lever
Pedals: KKT Top-Run
Seatpost + Seat: SR Laprade +Ariak Jaguar
Stem + Handlebars: SR AX-80 + SR Sakae Custom Japan Road Champ

*bump*

No one? Not even a "I'd give you $200 for it, but don't know if that is it's value..." ?
Well, I am not planning on selling, but I am just very curious what I have here. Anyone?

I just want to say it's a cool bike. I've never seen a Koga-Miyata that old.

In good shape I would value the bike, in my market, somewhere in the $100-150 range.
