Miyata Seven Twelve

What do you guys think about this Miyata, it's my size, needs a total overhaul, what do you think of it's value?

Is that a GAS CAN NEXT TO YOUR FURNACE? I hope not.

As a keeper rider, $150-$200, in NYC. I paid at the low end of this range for the 912 below last fall, overhauled 24 months prior, in VG condition.

Thanks for the compliments on the Miyata. It is in great condition.

You have a great eye for detail. Can't talk about a 912 and not talk about a 911. I had a 911 Cabrio AWD for a very short spell too, but didn't like the paddle shifters. I'm old school!

You have both of my dream cars right there! I hate u! lol jk

Yeah I could tell by the wheel under the cover that it was an XK, I hoping you bought yours pre-owned as the original owners are getting a pounding on value. I am looking to get a 2001-2002 myself as I heard thats the best year. Is yours in the traditional British Racing Green? Such a classy car!

I have always wanted a Porsche, I am not there yet, just turning 33 in a few short months, that is most likely going to be a retirement gift like my Uncle who just picked up a 2002 tt 996 awd, lucky

Thanks for the photos

Bikes like that don't turn up very often. It's definitely worth picking up. If it's not all rusty & bent up then seller could ask for $350 with a straight face. But, I would try not to pay more than $200 for it.

Post No 4 appears to indicate that the OP already has it in his stash. Enjoy!
