KOGA MIYATA Full Pro Shimano Dura Ace EX 7200, 56cm (1981)

Since 1974 people have had more time for leisure activities, because the working week got shorter. Koga, as a newly-founded bike manufacturer, took immediate advantage of this trend. Andries Gaastra, former Sales Manager at Batavus, founded Koga B.V. when his father Gerrit sold the Batavus business. He joined the first two letters of his wife’s surname with the first two of his own to form the brand name KOGA.

Gaastra’s aim was to bring an exclusive range of lightweight bikes to European market. He built the very first Koga at his own home in Oranjewoud, near Heerenveen. Gaastra quickly decided to specify components only from exclusive suppliers, so as to meet the highest quality expectations. Once Koga had become an importer of Shimano components, a network developed including other Japanese manufacturers. Among them was Miyata, a company which at this time had already been producing bike frames for 80 years.

In 1980s KOGA also sponsored professional cycling teams. In 1981 they were supplying CAPRI SONNE Pro Team with their bikes. The team had Dutch rider Peter Winnen on board who won a stage at 1981 Tour de France riding very similar KOGA Miyata Full Pro.
