I want one of those.....
What fork crowns does it have?
And what detail on the bottom bracket....
The flat crown with Miyata logo cut outs. The shell shows double 'M' cut outs.
The regular FullPro of the early 80s shows resemblance, but you can easily tell them apart by horizontal drop outs, flat stay caps with 'Pro' engraved and a couple more things.
The ProRacer also often comes in the blue/gold paintscheme, but it has an (semi) aero crown, a shell with 6 holes among some other things that will unveil it is a ProRacer.
Finally, the last variation in blue/gold: the 1981 FullPro-L. Many aerodynamic influences in the frame design, for example aero crown, fastback stays, shifter fitting on top downtube. A Dura-Ace AX bike.
Than there was also the FullPro-S, but it could be this is an one-off.
Mel how many bikes are in your collection ??
How do the dutch view the retro/new bike schism ??
I am not aware of such schism to be honest. Normally Dutch tend to be quite pragmatic with their bikes.
