Yes, they are launched now. Full story: http://www.miyatabike.com/project/japon/en_index.html

Most luxerious retro classic comes with gold plating and Super Record. It is not Miyata's first attempt with gold plating. They did the Century model in 1990 >> http://www.retrobike.co.uk/wiki/Miyata_Century

Any price list for these bikes ? I'm guessing a few thousand :(

The trick gold plated bicycle set you back 799,000 Yen I understand. That equals 5.593 GBP.

For the fillet-brazed bike I don't find pricing information.

I doubt they come available on our continent, so possibly you'll have to add your ticket price to the purchase price.

Yes, that is a lot of money. Alternatively look out for an early 80s FullPro. Another very fine frame, but you'll have to be happy with shifting from the downtube.

For that money you could easily have a custom built frame with full Athena group, etc.

How do they justify that price!?

i see there are a few other models though, how much are they?

I found out that when you click on the Japanese language icon you can view all prices.

For the fillet-brazed 'Elevation Extreme' model with Campagnolo Super Record EPS you'll have to bring 1.200.000 Yen with you. That is 8,388 GBP.

Cheapest option is the 'Legend Blue' frame only option. They want you to hand them over 229,000 Yen (1,600 GBP) and you'll be the happy owner.

Next to these bikes there are more affordable offererings available, like a more economical classic lugged frame with Centaur equipment for 299.000 Yen. A bit over 2K.
