Wow! I didn't realize they were still making those! Please tell me where you got it so I can order one for myself.

Nice. Looks just like the catalog pic.

Beautiful bike! I'd be interested in using the time machine if you're done with it.

It came with the original brake levers and crappy foam tubes for tape. I figured that I would be forgiven for modifying it for comfort/function.

Thanks for the compliments. I really want to keep it but the standover is a little too high and my Rodriguez is giving me dirty looks.

Very, very nice! Interesting that the catalog mentions that they're supplied with (not pictured) Grip Shifters, I've never seen a Miyata road bike that had them. I wonder if they shipped very many like that?

Great looking bike! I love it! I don't normally like fenders, but these look great! Very nicely put together!

Did you get this through the Seattle CL? I think I saw this listing today.

Holy cow! If I was at home right now, I would have gone to my garage to make sure mine was still hanging from the ceiling. But I run drumbrakes, not cantis. Whew!

PBP 1991. I built it from a frame set.


Twenty some years later, they're still great looking bikes

The one on Seattle CL is me selling it

I'd honestly keep it if I didn't have the Rodriguez Touring Bike.

Small world sometimes! (I'm up in Bellingham) Great bike you have there, to bad I'm a 64cm frame guy.

Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. I have its one-year-older brother (618GT), in probably about the same size. Love it to death.

I'll have to take some better pictures of the De Rosa. My girl loves it to death and it rides so nice that it has re-ignited my lust for a De Rosa of my own.

What a coincidence -I just decided to retape the handlebars. Went to find a picture of how the cables were before I ripped the foam off and found your post! With the taping, did you do a first pass under the shifter cables and then another layer over top (part way up). Just thinking if I ever need to replace those. Beautiful job! I'm inspired to really get mine cleaned up now. Other than the foam, the only thing that seems to have suffered is the bottom bracket. Any suggestions out there on that?
