Strange Miyata 610

So, ran across this post on craigslist-

https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/2287856173.html

I have a touring bike right now thats a little too small for me, this looks perfect! I'm planning on using it as a daily commuter and for some possible weekend touring in the spring/summer. A few old friends of mine swore by their 610/1000s for light touring. So, do you all think this is worth the $260?

In Portland? Yes. It is a strange setup but it looks like an 81 with a replacement fork. It could be the previous owner wanted a new fork to get canti brakes or it could be the bike was in a crash. I'd check the frame carefully for front end damage but it's a good bike for what you're planning and the generator hub, etc are all upgrades in my book.
