So, my daughter has taken a fancy to my FullPro despite it being a little too big for her. It relagates me to my run down tourer thus I've been toying with the idea of looking for a smaller FullPro for her to use and since it a good cause we'll split the cost.

And then on Friday I spotted this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/140798741158?_trksid=p5197.c0.m619 - A time warp condition Pro-Miyata with Dura Ace components - it would be a perfect fit and I believe it has the red sticker which is the champion tubing so should tip the scales at around 8.5kg. Anyhow having discussed the purchase at length with the seller (who has been very helpful) and with the missus (who is not quite so helpful!) I am going to have to let it go to somebody with deeper pockets.

The seller has agreed with his LBS that they will professionally package it if it is to be shipped and he has sourced a decent price on trans-atlantic shipping, so this bike would come in at £700 delivered. I thought it would be worth sharing with you all because I know how much you drool over those KM FullPro-Ls!!

I suppose so - its a pointer to a bike for sale that I thought would be of interest to the folk here.

If I'm out of line doing that then I guess this thread can be removed.

Thanks for sharing, thepisc.

I think this belongs in the eBay section, so I move it to there.

On the bike I can say this Pro-Miyata is more or less equivilent to the European Koga-Miyata ProRacer. The frames are very similar. The ProRacer comes with Tange 2 tubing and a full Dura-Ace EX gruppo. The Pro-Miyata has a blend of parts. With Koga-Miyata the red in the tubing decal denotes Tange Champion 1, while green denotes 2. That is not the case with Miyata.
