Koga Miyata Gentsracer Classic Road Bike 1981
- Manufacturer: Koga Miyata
- Size: 56 cm
This Koga Miyata Gentsracer dates back to 1981 and is a superb racing machine. The frame was built by Miyata, a company which has been in the bicycle business since 1890 and employed some of the best frame builders.
But not only the employees were special at Miyata. A hallmark of all their bikes was the tubing of tremendous quality. The result is stunning. So proud was Koga Miyata of their work, that they soon granted a life long guarantee on the frames.
This particular bike is made with Hi Manga double butted steel tubing and is fully fitted with a Shimano 600 groupset. The geometry of the frame has been adapted to the special Shimano 600ax crankset and thus comes with slightly lower seat tube which fits like a standard 56cm frame.
This bike arrived at Steel Vintage Bikes in almost original condition – it is just as it was displayed in the 1981 catalogue – the bike underwent a complete check in our workshop and thus is ready to be ridden!
Suitable for Eroica events. Elegant.
- Condition: Used. The bike is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork and decals are original. All parts have been checked and are working fine.
