Koga-Miyata...

A friend asked me to strip her Koga-Miyata to allow her dad - who is a Citro├źn restorer and collector - to give it a respray in the same color he was painting an old DS, and then put it back together. Very nice budget tourer...

Thanks! Outer chainring, cables and bartape, that's all that had to be bought new. All other parts came off the bike or from my parts bin and with the free respray it is a true budget bike.

good looking bike, and i bet it rides fantastically too.

also showcases the beauty of tried and true older kit. downtube shifter based drivetrains can last practically forever and can sit in a basement or garage neglected for decades and be pressed back into service with little or no work.

nice work on this one, looks great!

Also, if she gets bored with it as-is, that looks like it would be an excellent candidate for a 650B conversion.

Oh, definitely post pictures of the Citro├źn too! The lugs on the bike look nice, and I really like those scalloped seat stay caps. The color is nice too and I can imagine it looks sweet on the car.
