Offering Koga-Miyata RecordPro 'rolling chassis'

Package deal for frame, fork, some tech and wheels, hence rolling chassis.

The 1988 Koga RecordPro was an advanced bike in its time. It came equipped with full Dura-Ace 7400, 2 disc wheels and space age cockpit. View last pic in this post for built bike. With all this heavy artillery the battleship costed 13K in guilders in '88. The guilder is a currency from ancient times, but to give you an idea: For the same money you could have bought yourself a VW Polo or a couple nice Colnagos. That is also part of the reason why it is as rare as it is.

The frame
Brazed without lugs using triple butted Hardtlite FM-1 'Spiral Spline' tubing from Miyata's own(!) tubing mill. The tubing has (internal) spiral shaped reinforcements at the ends. The frame is very well made. It has quality dropouts and the connections towards the tubing are neatly done. The frame has the fastback type of seatstays that connect directly to the binderbolt housing. Brakecable through toptube. Frame is partially chromed.

- Miyata Hardtlite FM-1, Spiral Spline tubing
- brazed without lugs
- frame takes a 650 front wheel and a 700c rear wheel (included)
- rearbrake cable through toptube
- partially chromed
- galvanized, 7 step coat
- Shimano dropouts and shiftcable guides on top bb shell
- race number fitting

- Seattube: 58cm C-T
- Toptube: 560mm

I have been told this particular frame belonged to Marcel Duijn and has been raced to the Dutch National TT Title in the under 23 category. I can not confirm this personally.

There are cosmetic imperfection in the paint, with what I mean that it is a used frame and that you will find scratches and chips. Two specific issues worth mentioning: At a certain point the shifter braze on is moved from on top the downtube to the sides. The partial repaint that was done there is not performed very well. No proper surface preperation done, so some surface rust grabbed their chance. Nothing severe, but you will have to take care of it: Clean, surface preperation (base coat), paint. Secondly, there is rust present under the chrome on the fork blades. Only lower part. Not very well visible, but in case it bothers you, it leaves you with one option: Rechroming. Or repainting, if you can do without chrome. Structurally the frame is 100% sound.

Comes with
- Dura Ace headset, repacked, buttersmooth
- seatbinder bolt
- Dura Ace fronthub radially laced to Wolber 650 rim
- Dura Ace rearhub laced to Rigida DP18 rim
