For sale is my recently built Koga Miyata Pro-Racer circa late 1970's
The frame has been stripped and resprayed with new graphics as when I got the frame it was sprayed satin black over the original Orange and Chrome as per http://2velo.com/koga-miyata-pro-racer-tange-champion-dura-ace-7200/
Please note, I'm only assuming it the Pro-Racer model after researching the matching paint scheme. It's the only model I could find that matched, but I'm no expert. The frame does have the Shimano dropouts and the fork has the 'KM' logo embossed on the crown so it all appears to tie up, I just want to give some clarity.
I built the bike to my tastes using modern components as follows:
Ritchey Logic headset
Vision Team 30 wheelset with brand new bearings fitted with Continental Grand Sport Race 23mm tyres
Ultegra 6700 10sp crankset in 53/39 and B/B
105 5700 10sp 11-28 cassette
Ultegra 6800 front and rear derailleurs
Tiagra 4700 2x10 shifters
Tiagra 4700 calipers with Swiss Stop Pads
All Shimano cables used throughout and Shimano chain
Finishing kit is Prologo Kappa saddle, Bontrager 110mm stem and currently some Genesis 40cm bars.
Most parts are new or done less than 600km
The reason for sale is, after all this effort to strip, paint and build, the frame is simply too small for me. I was sold it as a 59cm and measured the seat tube at roughly that so carried on with the build. Once built and sat on, I then measured the top tube at 57cm which doesn't really suit my 6'3" frame. I'm gutted to say the least as I think its a stunning looking machine. The finishing kit was temporary until I had a fit, I thought some Ritchey Classic bars and a colour matched stem would set it off nicely. For reference the seat tube is 26.0mm
The bike is built and ready to ride, pedals not included. If you require anymore photo please ask.
Asking £600, collection from Bristol
I rarely check this site so best to call or txt on 07936 627555
Oops, bit of a typo on the price. Asking £600
Open to offers/advice as I appreciate its an unusual build
Drop on the asking price - £500
Dropped to £450 and there it will stay
This looks great. May I ask how high is the standover height? I'm a mere 5'11"
Thanks Mike, I like it. Floor to top tube is 83.5cm, 84 if you include the top run brake cable
That's an absolute shame for me. I'd be struggling a bit.
No worries, check these measurements against your current ride, and here for good info for others:
seat tube (centre B/B to centre top tube) - 59cm
top tube (centre seatpost to centre headtube) - 57cm
If it helps, the floor to top of the top tube was measured near the seat post end. As its a slightly sloping top tube, towards the headtube - the standover will be slightly less.
I'm struggling on 56cm stand over at the moment, so very sorry. Still love your build up. Mike
Anyone share Mike's great taste but is a touch taller? Last chance before eBay or split
