Offering 1979 Koga-Miyata GentsLuxe-S frameset
In the late 70s/early 80s the Koga roadbike range consisted of a couple pure racers like the ProLuxe and the FullPro - the bikes raced by the IJsboercke and Capri Sonne pro teams. Next to that there was a range of roadbikes for riders with a more relaxed attitude. The GentsLuxe-S was the most sophisticated and luxurious you could get.
Frame is nicely made. Do not expect a wealth of decoration, as it shows a no frills purpose aimed execution. Tubing is Miyata Hi-Manga DB for the entire frame. Shimano dropouts and bb cable guides. The frame is finished with a durable multi layer coat. Colour: A nice pearl brown. Typical for the era.
Original equipment for this bike was Dura-Ace EX with SR cockpit and post. Mavic rims.
- Miyata Hi-Manga DB tubing for frame and forks
- Shimano dropouts and bb guides
- durable 7 step coat
- Seattube: 58cm c-t
- Toptube: 550mm
The frame has not seen much use, but there are some cosmetic flaws. Paint is overall very good with a nice gloss, but mainly some peeling edges and other imperfections in the panels have their effect on overall impression. I think with clear tape most can be corrected quite well, but not all. There are several scratches in paint: on toptube and on stays. View pics to inform yourself. Structurally frame is 100%. I am pretty sure it is a very low miles frame and that most cosmetic occured through moving around in a storage.
