1989 57cm Miyata 1000LT - $750
- Not mine. Pix on link.
offering a fine touring bicycle.
the wiki page for Miyata is interesting, but to speed things along i'll
give the critical info about this particular bicycle and those that are
interested can do some research
i'll share just one little blurb gleaned from the Miyata wiki page
"Miyata 1000: Touring bike with splined, triple-butted Chromo
tubing."..."Noted bicycle authority, Sheldon Brown called the Miyata
1000 "possibly the finest off-the-shelf touring bike available at the
time". The 1000 was marketed in the U.S. from the late 1970s and
marketed in North America until about 1993
frame measures 57cm square, which means both seat and top tubes measure 57cm center-to-center.
i carefully overhauled this bike before riding it, i've put limited miles on since this bike dosn't fit me perfectly
has lots of the original parts still faithfully serving, brakes,
crankset, derailleurs and shifters, seatpost, front wheel and other
little extras like the distinct and super chunky housing stop for the
front brake housing, barrel adjusters, bb cable guide and bolts in mid
fork braze on are distinct as original
i replaced the headset as the original was worn out. i installed a new
shimano un-54 bottom bracket, shimano 7 speed cassette and sram chain.
index shifting works nicely, deore rear derailleur is still goin'
strong. replaced the other standard wear stuff, all the cables and
housing, brakes pads, and pretty-darn-near-new-still panaracer pasela tg
handlebar, stem, brake levers, saddle and pedals are just stuff that i
like. i end up changing out all of those things every time i take over a
bike...i'm a pro bike mechanic with years of experience in a well
respected shop in town and the bike is dialed, dosn't need anything done
to it other than if you choose to personalize
no lowball offers is a given, right?, and i don't want your old bike or
anything else in trade. sorry. new touring bikes cost more that this
and are probably a lot less cool..
cash only. test rides are welcome. read my ad to see if i answer your questions before calling please, and thanks for looking!
