Anybody have or have had one of these late-80's cans? I was perusing a catalog online and it looks pretty fast but I haven't ever seen or heard of 'em before.

I never heard of them either. Probably means one of two things - (possibly both)

1. Not many of them and they didn't market them.
2. Not that special.

1987 6500 with dressed in Shimano 105. Weird Aluminum/steel combo I think.

The bikes are very confortable to ride. They're aren't as harsh and jarring as a Cannondale but they aren't as stiff either. Build quality is very good as would be expected from a 'Made in Japan' Miyata.

Dont expect to be getting a superbe sprinter or a phenominal climber. What your going to get is a very nice, comfortable, smooth ridding road racing bike.
