Miyata Catalogs to Be Posted

As the distributor of Miyata Bicycles in Canada, I have copies of all past Miyata catalogs. I was looking to scan them and put them up. There are a lot of them. If there is any interest, I'll go ahead and do it, just let me know here if you are interested in seeing these classic catalogs.

They'd be terrific to see and have as a reference. Thanks for the offer!

That would be an invaluable source to have available a Miyata model archive.

A big thank you in advance!

Wow, this is very interesting, thanks. Where in Toronto can new Miyatas be purchased? I haven't seen them around at all...

Miyata Catalogs

Thank you for your interest in the Miyata Catalog's Collection, I will do my best to scan them and post them for all the Miyata enthusiasts, that I noticed are many of them.
Please give me time, as you know I live in Canada and the weather is horrible at this time of the year, soon I will be heading to Chile where I spend my Canadian Winters.
Thank's again,
Hernan P.Burgos(NANOBURGOS)

Thank you all for your interest in seeing some classic Miyata Catalogs.

I have set up a site for everyone here:

https://www.miyatacatalogs.com

I started from 1981 and have been adding the years up from there.

Enjoy!

Thanks Hernan! I'll check back in a few days to see 1986 (that's what year mine is from).
