Offering 1984 Koga Miyata FullPro frame and early 80s Dura Ace Dyna Drive ensemble

The FullPro
Top of the line frameset of Miyata of Japan, a major company that from the late 70s on pretty much marginalized all than existing industry. By early 70s everybody was still laughing about the Japanese, a decade later they had wiped the competition away with flawless Japanese quality at a sympathic price point. Imo this frame is the best put together offering of the era by an 'off the shelf' manufacturer and it is also better put together than expensive offerings from by far most great names in Italy.

The frame raced by the IJsboercke and Capri Sonne team in the late 70s and early 80s.

Frame is completely built using Miyata's own (yes, they had an own mill) Hardtlite FM-1 tubing. Neat microfusion lugs show nice 'M' cutouts. Bottom bracket shell is open with cut outs in the same 'M' shape. There are Miyata logo engravings present on top the flat crown fork.

Miyata did supply the frame to Koga of the Netherlands. Koga assembled the frame with Dura Ace EX or the frame left Koga as frame only option.

Features:
- full Miyata Hardtlite FM-1 tubing
- microfusion lugs, 'M' cutouts (painted gold)
- microfusion crown, Miyata logo engravings (painted gold)
- open bottom bracket shell
- Shimano drop outs and little frame parts
- chromed fork and tail
- blue/gold, 7 step coat
- Seattube: 60cm c-t
- Toptube: 570mm

Condition:
This is the kind of frame that looks great from a distance, but shows a couple nasty spots up close. In particular on the headlugs rust present. It is reflected in the price of this frame. Structurally the frame is 100% sound. Frame will build great rider.

Comes with:
- Dura Ace EX bottom bracket in great shape
- seatpost binder bolt

Looking for 135 GBP shipped

Optional:
Dyna Drive ensemble

The Dyna Drive ensemble
Consisting of:
- Dura Ace EX DynaDrive crankset
- Dura Ace AX DynaDrive pedals
- toe clips
- Dura Ace 'One Key Release' bolts

Dyna Drive ensemble: 80 GBP shipped

Classy frame that and a good price.

Deserves a sympathetic build. Tempted myself but I already have too many bikes.

Good luck with the sale.
