Miyata 310, purchased from Stone's in Alameda, Ca. in late summer 1984. Serial L170896. Came with the "Golden Arrow" shift levers and front and rear deraileurs.

Top,

Thanks for continuing to try find a home for the Miyata. BTW, thanks again for the lunch! Hope to see you on the Cape soon.

Scott, the 610 is going to Daytona! Gent contacted me last week about it, and I'm boxing it up now.
I just got this from a fellow in Hyannis; it's waiting for me in Chatham. Not a Miyata, and not top of the line, but a few steps up from what I usually ride.
I'll be down sometime over Patriots Day.

Top, that's great news! The Miyata has spent all of it's years in cold climates, it deserves sunny Florida.
I really wanted it to be ridden again, thanks for being a part of that process. Not sure when I'll be down to CC, if you're there maybe I'll try to get down that weekend. As you know, the weather can be really nice .... or really, really bad.

Good going on your new ride!

Scott

Hi,

I owned this bike till about a year ago:

Many more pics :)

Very stable, smooooth ride with sweet DA EX/AX equipment. Liked it a lot! It was the earliest with Miyatas own tubing in my stable back then. It went to a friend in UK. Unfortunately it turned out to small for him, so that is why it is up for sale again. Maybe interesting for somebody on here. It was practically new, at least when it left me.

It should get to see plenty of hot sunny days here pretty soon. I guess in a roundabout way I should thank you for being part of the reason why it's headed to me :) I've been wanting a Miyata of my own for years now. Can't wait!

Top506 is a true gentleman for giving me the opportunity to finally scratch this Japanese itch I've been having :D

Here's mine. I took these today because I'm going to sell it after 3 years of faithful service. Kinda makes me sad. :(

Kinetikx,

If you're interested PM me and I'll fill you in on the history of that Miyata and how I got it. It's got a lot of mile running under it.

Can I see your Miyata?
 
Triple Cross with road tires and Blackburn rack. Early 90s - don't remember the exact year.

The tinyurl is clean, I made it my own self.

Looks like a bike I'd build (love that Exage Sport/400/500 stuff).
If it were 54/56cm we'd have to talk......;)

Very nice and original looking 310. I have a '83 Miyata 210 in the same burgundy paint that also came from Stone's in Alameda.

When I bought it used from the friend of a co-worker, the RD and hanger were a bit mangled so I decided to swap the drivetrain out for Shimano Sora with northroad bars and 7 speed rapid fire shifters. It has always been comfortable and trouble free, despite the frame being a bit on the small side for me. Too bad the stock, smooth wall Araya's don't have the hooked beads though.

It is almost all original. I put the Avocet Touring II saddle and Blackburn rack on back in '86, and I swapped the Arayas for some Wienmann concave rims a few years back. The rest is stock.

My '79 Gran Touring that I am getting ready to ebay. It was my first real bike..

Koga Dork Bike
 
Here is my dorky bike, a 2007 Koya-Miyata Expression. Nothing fancy, but it does the commuting job reliably, with a nice gear range despite being an internal gearbox, which is what I was really looking for when I found that Koga had just such a beast.

Slowly, slowly adding better components. Even still, it is a beautiful ride, no matter what they say about the bonded lugs.

My '87 912.... again. Gently updated. It's my favorite bike, just got back from a 55mi ride on it to Sunol for lunch...

Thanks. It does get old being hassled when on group rides with my buddies, with "when are you going to get a decent bike?" My answer: never. This bike fits perfectly, and rides like a dream. The 6lbs it outweights my friends bikes by, is more than made up, by the gallon+ of water they carry in their stupid Camelbacks! Maybe I need new riding buddies.... .

sonatageek 05-05-08 07:02 PM

I currently have two that I got in just the last few weeks. A Commuter and an early 80's 610 -- both inline for a complete tear down and rebuild.

Here's my black and gold Miyata 310 road bike that I bought recently. Ride is very smooth and I really like it.

Here's my Miyata 610. The 2nd picture is the same bike loaded. the 3rd pic. is my wife's 615. It's the small frame with the 24" wheel up front. Looks odd but fits her well.

hxzero 06-01-08 09:14 PM

I don't know whose it is, but I lock my bike up next to this beautiful red 615 every tuesday and thursday when I go to one of my classes. It's my size, too.
