56 cm Titanium Team Miyata




56cm Titanium Team Miyata. According to the owner, the Right Brifter is not functioning correctly. Frame seems to be in good condition. Thoughts on value as it currently sits?

Really surprised it isn’t Dura Ace or 600 tricolor. Still I would be higher than estimate above.


Edit: OK, I didn't catch the glued frame. Estimate above is good.

Agreed.
Probably not by much though.

Neat bike, but I certainly don't see more than $500 tops.

Just basing my opinion on it being a local sale and not a Litespeed or a Merlin . 105SC seems to be odd on a frame this nice too although I have a lot of miles on 105 and it always works great

Great bar tape color.
too bad the bar ends are cut so short.
Needs work, good performing but no-status group set.

is the fork steel? or ti?
I am not familiar with this model.

I think the "$500 tops" assessment is correct. It's a funky frame, but nice material and possibly rare. Even so, I dont think it would be as sought after as a welded ti frame (which would inspire more riding confidence with me than bonded as this appears to be).
I've gotten 2 out of 3 of those early Shimano brifters working again by just flushing them with degreaser and re-lubing them, so I wouldn't worry too much about that myself. But sometimes it's an easy fix, sometimes they're just busted (in my experience).
