I have this stunning Koga Miyata Gents Racer up for grabs.

It is built from Tange Champion tubing and is in lovely condition. The frame does have a few marks as you'd expect, the worst being on the drive side seat stay where the paint has been scratched away revealing the chroming underneath. It doesn't stand out as you can see in the pictures.

The groupset is mainly Shimano 600 arabesque and AX. Many parts have been polished to a very high standard including the chainset, headset, seatpost and pedals, it looks great! All other parts are in very good condition too. Worth noting the Shimano 600 seatpost and beautiful 600 stem (could do with a new top cap)

The wheels are Mavic 501 hubs on Mavic Gel 280 tubular rims with hardly used Vittoria Competition Rally tubs, the front wheel is tied and soldered too. Nothing beats the ride of tubs this excellent wheelset really livens up the bike. I'm confident that after riding with these you'll be a convert!

I'm looking for £295 posted

Thanks fella yes it's a nice bike and off to eBay today.

Archster I'm not likely to find another one of them anytime soon! Should have brought the last one ;) Yes unfortunately I didn't think this is what you are looking for and probably too small anyway....
