Immaculate Miyata 912 for sale or trade

1986 Miyata 912 for sale or trade . 60 cm. I would prefer to trade for a 58cm Team Fuji or Centurion Ironman but would consider others.
The bike is about in as new condition as you can get for a 1986. Check the photos out even the original seat shows next to no wear.
Everything is original except tires ,bar tape and brake hoods.Just got done cleaning replacing and relubing bearings in bottom bracket, wheel hubs and headset.
Asking $450

Ironman frame

I have two Ironman frames you can choose from for a partial trade.

Neither are nearly as pristine as the Miyata.

I really hate to be that guy, but in pictures 6 & 7, the fork looks a bit bent backwards. Do you have a straight-on side shot of the front end?

Very nice Miyata!

I have an 84 Fuji Team in pretty nice shape. As I measure it, 59 cm seat tuber center-to-center, and 58 cm top tube. Was planning to sell to thin the herd a bit, but would consider a trade if it suits you....

Original except for seat post (now a Suntour Superbe), replacement DiaCompe brake hoods (look and work fine, fit is just OK), and black stem (unknown maker). New bar tape.

No pedals on it right now, but I might even have the original (and weird) MKS Esquartz pedals in a box somewhere....



Only non-original parts are the seat post, black Nitto stem, and hoods/bar tape


Suntour Cyclone MKii drivetrain







Hoods are Dia Compe replacements-- the fit is only OK, but they work.

Wow that's a nice Team Fuji. I hope that deal happens. A worthy trade I'd say.
