Miyata 710 46cm

Picked this up just because.
Pretty sure it's a 85.
Has the original Miyata tires even.
Decent components.
Not sure what to do with it just yet.
Its to small for me at 46 cm.
New tires and bar tape perhaps

That's a very nice bike, I have two Miyatas, a 712 I found used and a Team I bought new, both are late 80's vintage.

But I have question, why did you buy the bike if it doesn't fit? If your going to resell it for a profit then fine I understand that, but please don't butcher it and part it out. Maybe you have a wife or girlfriend or daughter or son you could give it to?

Was thinking either to flip it or have my wife ride it. Def not part it out. I was thinking of putting new tires and handlebar tape on

I think having your wife ride it would be a great idea assuming it fits her of course. Then she will have a very nice vintage bike to ride, and people who know bikes that ride past her will take notice, plus you have a nice vintage Japanese bike in your possession.

Just an FYI, if anyone is looking for a smaller vintage touring bike my LBS has a Schwinn Voyageur they are selling. I assume he would be willing to pack it up and ship it out. Pretty good condition, don't have a lot more info but could find out. I would like to see it go to a good touring home.
