Miyata Seven Ten - What is it worth & how old is it ??

I have this tall old Miyata Seven Ten.

Suntour drive, Dia Compe brakes, Araya rims, double-butted Cro-Mo tubing...

Anyone know for sure how old it is ??

Is this a good one ?

With the serial we can pinpoint the year, although with the band clamp holding the downtube shifters, I'd say '81 or '82.

It could also be a 1982 model.

I have this exact same bike in worse condition. It's early 80s edition. meaning the tubes are double butted like you said; not triple butted like late 80s Miyatas. also missing some other tech upgrades but cannot remember.

I say 200$ in a major city, less elsewhere.
