'85 Miyata 710 build (pics)

I picked this up as a bare frame last week to flip; spot touched with nailpolish and built it up with a bunch of SunTour from my drawers. Cyclone 2nd gen F & RD. Early Superbe cranks. Tange Falcon headset. Black stem and bars isn't my preferred choice, but they've been hanging around waiting for a build for far too long. Dia Compe/NGC brakes. Wheels donated by a friend - 105 front and Gipiemme Record-copy rear. SunTour pinecone makes it go. Even picked up the stock SunTour Symmetric shifters from the LBS for a few bucks - not surprised those things didn't catch on.

Just took it out for a shakedown and it's a seriously fun tall-mans' rider. Great rigidity out of the saddle.

Nice looking build, I love the ride of mine as well but I am also not a fan of those shifters so Ive been thinking of getting some STI's for it...

jebensch - that is a wonderful looking assemblage of treasures from your parts drawer -
Now that it came together on that Miyata so well, do you really want to flip it?

Yes. I. am. still. going. to. flip. the. bike.

Actually, I have a Nishiki Comp II that's the same Ferrari red and has lots of good Superbe stuff on it, so that'll make it easier to part with this mean Miyata.
