Miyata Twelve Ten

Can anybody tell me more about the above model as I have the opportunity to pick one up. I've figured that the 1200 is a higher end model but haven't found anything about the 1210. Was wondering if this is a good bike and what it might be worth.

I've never heard of a 1210 and I'm pretty familiar with Miyata. It sounds like somebody typoed a 210 by simultaneously striking the 1 & 2 key. We'll need pics of this to be sure but the 210 was an entry level model. There was lots of variation, depending on the exact year, so again, pics are necessary.

In NYC, that is a very fair price. Good luck!

Looking through the Miyata catalogs, the closest match in color is the 1983 310, but it had the shifters on top of the down tube. It's hard to tell in the CL picture, but there may be the stub from the braze on by the cable stop. Decal colors seem to match, too. Miyata Bicycle Catalogs: Miyata Catalog 1983

I have had my 310 for 32 years. The 310 is a better than entry level bike. The frame is double butted cro-mo, the fork is 1024 hi-tensil steel, sport touring geometry. About 25 lbs. as built, you could lighten it a bit by switching to better wheels/tires.

Someone 5'11" might have a hard time there I think as he mentions in the ad. That thing is big.

Looks like a 25.5in frame, best to be 6'2 and taller. Casually looks like parts have been swapped out, the 210 would have had triple crank, weinman center pulls, etc. They are great sleeper bikes for touring specs but that one is not set to tour right now, price for NYC seems pretty good if it rides though. Here is stock 1984 210 found last year, I was very impressed for "entry".

The pic is very poor. It's obviously very much a frankenbike. However, the rear derailleur cable does appear to run over the top of the chain stay, indicating early 1980s. It is also appears to have a Schraeder valve on the rear, indicating 27" wheels. Lack of braze-ons except for the bottle bosses, top tube tunnels and possibly a boss for shift levers on the top of the down tube. Everything is pointing towards entry level model. Hopefully, it is a 1983 (or 1984) 310, as suggested by Pompiere, as they at least had a butted CrMo main triangle.

Miyata didn't make any junk, so that's a decent price.

Miyata didn't make a 1210. Nice bike. If you're tall you should go check it out. Seems like a fair price. I bought my 1987 Miyata One Twelve mixte for $250 in the Portland market and really like it.

I was very pleased with my 1987 312 purchased on CL for $180 in barely ridden condition (what else is new? ), as a stop-gap for my 6-month assignment to Switzerland in 2013, but now it's looking for a new home, as it is slightly undersized for me.
