Koga Miyata

In 1974 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 a range of lightweight bikes to market. 

He built the very first Koga at his own home in Oranjewoud, near Heerenveen. Gaastra quickly decided to specify components to meet the highest quality

Once Koga had become an importer of Shimano components, a network developed including other Japanese cycle manufacturers. Among them was Miyata, a company which at this time had already been producing cycle frames for 80 years which led to the creation of Koga Miyata bicycles

Until 2010 Koga frames were produced by Miyata, and the suffix Miyata was placed after the brand name Koga.

Koga Miyata is still a successful bicycle manufacturing company in Holland
