Miyata Sport Ten Mixte

In the spirit of keeping C&V bike geeks entertained, I hereby submit pics of a fun project of a Miyata Sport Ten Mixte that I put together for my wife. Hope you guys like it.

Yep. Thankfully the original brakes had plenty of reach.

It's not so much a ginormous rack as it is a teeny frame.

They really looks great. I am putting the finishing touches on a red and white Nishiki Sport mixte for a friend. Bike has been in the works for over a year and I finally got the tires and cable taken care of. I thought it looked sharp, but yours would make mine feel jealous so I will have to keep it away from the computer.

That's not a Selecta crank, so probably not.
