Miyata 110

So I think I may have finally found a bike for a fair price that isn't already sold.
After doing some research, it looks like it's a 1983 Miyata 110. From my limited knowledge it looks like it's really good shape which is a plus for me because I don't want to have to do any repairs or take it to a bike shop, if it is in as good of shape as the seller says it is. So here is the link, and he said he would sell for 150.
Thanks for all your help!

I would jump on it at $150. I sold a very clean 110 for $220 in SoCal last summer and it was not as tasty looking as that blue one.
IF it fits you and is in good a shape as seller claims.

$150 is reasonable if it's very clean and road ready. The 110 was just a "sport" level, but still a good riding bike.

99% of the vintage bikes I find need some repairs. Most bikes sit idle for an extended period. Its part of the whole process: "ride a bike for a while, leave it hanging in the garage for a while (intending to ride it again soon), and then finally letting it go to another home". Now if it is for sale by a reputable bike rehabber, it may be good to go.

Even if it is in really good shape, I would mentally be prepared to put $75 or so into it for minor adjustments, lubing bearings, and so on. If it needs tires, double that figure (unless you do the work yourself).

Bike should not last long at that price.
