Same bike?

Either way the setup looks terrible. Has the look of being bought by someone that is to big for it.

No descent drive side shot. My photo skills are crap but those pictures look like they have been taken with a phone camera. I would be ditching that Vetta saddle ASAP if it was mine too and replace it with Super Corsa or a Turbo.

I wouldn't spend half that. I have seen mint in the box 50th ann. groupsets go for $2500.

Plus it's made for midgets.

HA!

I know there are some taller fellows up north who might be interested in this, I'd be all over it myself if I didn't already have a similar bike on the way.
A mid range model, but Miyata steel nonetheless - I *think* the GL212 is the Australian version of the 210 'sports tourer'. Get some centrepulls on it and you've got yourself a lovely randonneur.

Sydney Vintage Bikes, there's been a fair few of their bikes on here. Always beautifully clean and well presented but ludicrously overpriced. If you were going to go to that much effort, why wouldn't you use something better than a Tourney RD?

EDIT: IMO, TBO, allegedly etc etc.

A muppet with reportedly "Frame is of very light weight butted steel " ...but your Honour....is that not a 1020 Steel sticker on the seat post?...Ahh sorry about that ....yes it is in reality GASPIPE!

Your advert then goes into further delicious detail...
...Bike is in an excellent original state. Always kept indoors.

Really then why do you reveal....
....Frame appears repainted in some areas but still retains all factory decals - looks excellent.

I'll take liberty IMHO etc
bike is fitted with the below low quality components

cheers! i like browsing op shops and used bookstores on my days off. some of the books i've picked up for 50c are just awesome.
it pays to know roughly what you want before you walk in tho, or you might walk out with a bagful (or two) of books ;p
