1981 Miyata 310

Looking for a general value on a 1981 Miyata 310. Lots of touched up chips and scratches on the top tube and forks, but no rust and everything operates smoothly. A few changed parts like Araya alloy rims with 12 speed gearing (2x6). Recently lubricated, decent tires, new bar wraps. Nothing special. Just a nice riding bike.

Northern NJ market.

So you transferred aluminum rims to existing hubs and spokes? Or swapped out a different wheelset?

I can't say about northern NJ, but in the DC market, that would sell at $195, maybe a bit more if fully overhauled with an excellent description of the work done.

Thanks Phil. The wheels were on the bike when I got it. Looks like the entire wheelset was swapped.

I don't believe my market is quite that strong. But I appreciate the estimate.

Gone!

Sold it very quickly for $150. Probably could have asked more since it went so fast and had lots of interest.

Anyway, thanks to all!
