A little different from the usual, but no less C&V. Worth saving?

Sparse ad, but given the relatively benign asking price, maybe worth further investigation.

I don't know anything about those bikes, but it does look very interesting, just from that standpoint it may be worth saving, it looks like the Japanese may have tried to copy those Holland bikes that look sort of similar. It will be a heavy anchor to pedal around but for sure you'll get questions asked about it.

I'm no Olmo expert but I do watch them on eBay and bought a frame set earlier in the year. I've yet to see a frame go for less than $300 and a bike for less than $500. I'm thinking this could be a great deal.

Shipping would probably be less than $50 if you use BikeFlights.

Old-school Deore pedals I think. Don't quote me on that

Original Miyata 310 Road Bike Pedals - $5 (Denver, CO)



For sale is a pair of solid metal bike pedals from my Miyata 310 road bike.

These are the original pedals that came with this bike, so if you are restoring an 80's Miyata these will fit the bill perfectly!

These pedals work great, and the bearings are completely smooth. Selling because I've switched to clip in pedals on my road bike.

If this post is still up, they are available. Texts preferred.

Thanks!

This one looks legit -- I almost never see these with such a low opening bid and no reserve. I suspect it will reach four figures at auction close.

I am shocked at the weight figure, however (24.9 lbs?).
