Time Miyata -- Your thoughts?

Oh, that's a bad one. Make that "Team Miyata"

Hi All,

I wasn't looking for another bike, but this Team Miyata fell into my hands. It appears to be a 1985 based on this catalog reference:

It is all Dura Ace and all other components match the specs. It is a 54 and has been ridden very little. There is virtually no wear on the original Dura Ace brake pads. SN# NU45028. Everything works. All I have to do is put wheels on it and go. I might even be able to stand the non aero brake levers. It is a size below my normal 56, but I think it will be quite rideable.

I really don't know much about Team Miyatas. How desirable are they?

And, I would most appreciate seeing your pics.

Thanks

Some consider them to be the finest production Japanese bike ever made.
