I had fun and put a lot of effort in restoring my latest 1977 Presto, just when I finished I ran into this minty looking example of a Koga for a nice price.
On this one all I had to do is swipe some of the dust off as it is almost spotless and original, even the Koga aero bottle is still here.

Great looking bike and it was very advanced in 1982 with all the aerodynamic little nicknacks. ( first aero brakelevers, seatpost, headset and the dyna crankset and paddle design)

Altough these are rare I see one of his bigger brothers is also presented on Velospace :) and certainly looking as good as this one.

Up Close

When I was able to look at one of these up close, it made me want one. Quite distinctive bike. Really like the AX stuff.

Classic Koga Miyata! Cool

Classic Koga Miyata! Cool that a 1982 bike can look as good as this after 31 years. Quality Japanese product, such innovative stuff, fascinating RD cable guide and cap on the headset. Though I don't see how those brake calipers are more aero than regular ones.
Btw is that a long toptube or is that just an illusion?
