RE: Attention whore thread
I've had a thing for chrome bikes ever since I was but a wee lad and I drooled over the top-of-the-line Full Pro Aero in the 1985 Koga catalogue:

One day… of course, preciously few of those were ever sold. The ƒ4995,- list price, which is the equivalent of about $10,000 in today's money, probably didn't help. I only ever saw two being offered in the second-hand market, and they both went for four-figure amounts.

Seems to me the only real difference between yours and the aero model is the graphics package (and the fact that yours has much better components now). Surely you could pick up some Koga Miyata stickers on ebay for a song.

I love the look of that shiny bike of yours. Very nice! I'd ride it with a sense of smug satisfaction were it mine.

Roo is correct. Again.

I also like it because it has no decals. That's a huge plus. I don't care if the plebs know what I'm riding.

I've got a head badge ready to be mounted, and there's a small frame sticker coming. That'll hopefully avoid having to answer the same question over and over again. But there'll be no big name stickers on the tubes, unless Koga or Miyata start paying me.
