I should buy it myself, but chose to share this with you, but I could change my mind :) I think it is a steal. People happen to have no idea what they are offering/seeing or this is possible in UK only.

It is a 1980MY Koga-Miyata FullPro-L. It is the superplusultra Koga in the 1980 line up. Imo one of the nicest models Koga ever had. I have 3 FullPro-L's myself. A pristine one in this size (61-I think) and a 58 and 57. The bike has DynaDrive pedals, so this adds up 17mm, unless you plan to use regular pedals. For me a 61 in DD setup is a bit tall.

DA EX
SR extra super light stem
1980MY, unlike the seller claims

Safe it from those damn hipsters :lol:

1.83mm. Normally a 61 with normal pedals fits me well. The cranks can be replaced by early Dura Ace with conventional thread (that ran paralel also) or adapter pieces (I happen to have acces to them).

I have you seen riding on a 58 bike and a 60 bike. I would think the later was more accurate for you.

According to the 1980 German price list the FullPro-L cost DM 3120,-. The 'regular' FullPro set you back DM 2475,-.
