Kenny - those should sell in Santa Fe. Hell, if you took dog crap, painted it up nice, put a fancy Euro-Nippo logo on it, a nice groupo and decent wheels, those saps in that town will buy anything.

Kinda' reminds me of the Panasonic I rode back in the mid-80's.

Wasn't there a forum member on the old site who was all about Miyata?

SWG -yeah, but we are looking at distributing these in N. America as well, they will sell here for sure, you know the crowd, (More money than brains)
miss my old Panasonic, that was a DAMN good bike, story goes that the original founder of Panasonic loved bikes, but once he died the son killed it due to ill performing numbers. Damn those were some good bikes, Some Peoples Kids Dammit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ha ha ha ha

I wouldn't buy one. If I was going to go steel, I'd wait for a true classic to come along. Buying a bike just like the one I rode 20 years ago doesn't really appeal to me unless it is a real classic. If someone said they were going to make a car just like a 1970, same power, same weight, same handling... Just like a classic but not a classic, would anyone here buy it?

If I had a ton of disposable income I might be convinced to buy a new steel custom... maybe something in stainless just for the heck of it
