86 Free Agent Cruiser from Mike Miranda

Saw an ad on CL yesterday and it said it was Mike Miranda's bike. I had my doubts but it was a good deal so I made the hour drive to go check it out. When I got there low and behold it was Indeed Mike Miranda. Stayed for about a half hour and listened to some great stories about how he got started and the different teams he rode for. I would have loved to have talked longer but it was late and I didn't want to keep him up too late. Didn't get too much info from him on this bike but I will call him later and find out more. Hands down one of the coolest and nicest guys I have met in the hobby. Down to earth and a real pleasure to talk to. Anyway it's not my greatest score but definitely one of my favorites because of how cool he was.http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/150x100q90/905/QLeWHS.jpghttp://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/150x100q90/661/CEqKFr.jpghttp://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/150x100q90/537/6tBsSa.jpghttp://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/150x100q90/673/y7gbqu.jpghttp://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/150x100q90/538/81JtRQ.jpghttp://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/150x100q90/673/PmAVD4.jpghttp://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/150x100q90/911/9YgpvY.jpg

Sweet score.  BTW, next time you see Severin, tell him thanks for welding my Supercross!

Am I right in assuming this is an 86?

I know he rode for CW and Hutch. Was he riding the F/A because it was more his size?  Plenty of riders were using other companies frames with their sponsors stickers back then.

Free Agent was the last company he raced for 88-89 not sure why he was on a 86 or 87 frame,maybe he liked it better.

Re: 86 Free Agent Cruiser from Mike Miranda

It was listed as Mike Mirandas bike like maybe his wife posted it. I wish the pics were bigger too but I am terrible on my phone and that's what size they came out. If you click on them they will blow up though. As far as not getting a pic with him and the bike...trust me I thought about it. It's just that he was being so cool I did t want to seem weird and potentially annoy him.

Re: 86 Free Agent Cruiser from Mike Miranda

So how come this frame set came back up for sale so quickly on eBay ???  (I bought it  just because it looked a decent frame regardless of it's history) & it's just landed here with me in the UK & will be my daily rider when the summer comes back around... Cant wait to build her up......
