She's back!!!!!

This was my very first vintage bicycle.After collecting an Ironam and Miyata 912 I decided to sell it.Sold it 2 or 3 years ago to a young man that lived 10 miles away.
So I was surprised to see he had it listed back for sale. He told me his circumstances changed shortly after he bought and only had the chance to ride it a couple
times.After all this time and collecting 2 Ironman, One Miyata 912, one Miyata 615 and one Specialized Sequoia I still missed this bike.I had just sold the Miyata
615 so I bought the unique back. Even though it just has Blue Line friction derailleurs it shifts smoother than any of my other bikes.

Nice Robert

Pretty, and it looks like the Sugino crank is a 110bcd so if you wanted you could get some easier gearing with smaller chainrings. That crank probably is also threaded for a 3rd chainring if needed or wanted.

Never underestimate Suntour stuff- The friction stuff always shifts great- the less expensive stuff will just be heavier because it's got more steel than aluminum.

I was shocked today to see a "stock" Trek TX300 with Cyclone... I can't imagine anyone considering 1st gen-ish Cyclone somewhere around an entry level group.

Nice that it didn’t languish outside in the elements for those years.
