This is one of the rarer Kogas - a 1988 Willem Van Vliet Roadrunner. This special edition was created to commemorate the great Dutch Racer Willem Van Vliet - a cyclist so great, he was commemorated on Dutch stamps.
This bike was handmade by Koga in the Netherlands (not by Miyata in Japan) from Koga's own special manganese alloy steel. The bike carries a lifetime warranty by Koga. It is the pinnacle of Randonneur style and performance.
The bike is 57cm c-c seattube and 57cm c-c toptube and has a nicely performing feel to it. The bike is in very excellent original condition and is fully equipped with all the original components and accessories. The frame is so thoughtful, it even has internal routing for the lighting wiring.
Original equipment includes:
Koga-Miyata (Dutch) front and rear pannier racks
Koga (Dutch) 'Wim Van Vliet' edition Fenders with integrated wiring for lights
Front and rear lamps and generator, reflectors
Sakae Strong Seatpost
Nitto Swallow Handlebars

This is a very rare edition of a very high-quality Dutch Randonneur bike. It is a very special bike; complete, original and in very fine condition with every accessory. It is well worth the $1000 OBO that I am asking. I am in Nanaimo half the week and Burnaby half the week, and can show it in either place.
