So I'm just really curious about niji bikes. I haven't been able to find anything at all about them online. The reason is that I just built a single speed out of a niji frame and I'm just curious about the frame's history or at least what the bike company was about.
Fuji perhaps? Or Nishiki? Or maybe Fuji and Nishiki had a love-child?

I know right, it's not as though I haven't looked, but I really can't find anything. And it's definitely just Niji, the name is on the bike in two or three different places. It would be cool if it was a fuji nishiki hybrid tho.
I'm a bit late in this post, but i also have a NIJI bike, it's a Concorde model. I think it is from the 1990's and it's made in Canada. I already strip the bike for a paint job, but i think it was right "1081 steel tubing" on it. Low end bike!? Maybe... but nice looking bike, nice frame shape and tubes finish! I have no idea what was the hardware on it, the crack was replace by a peugeot and there is no brand on brake calipers and levers...
I also will build a "fixed" track style with it. It's waiting for new paint!
I will post some pictures soon, so perhaps somebody else will try to find some infos about NIJI bikes and find this post!
i had two NIJI bikes in my life first one was a 1983 chrome BMX and the second one was a light green touring bicycle with shimano 600. They where bought at the time at a RO-NA store near quebec city (Quincaillerie Durand). This hardware store had a sport banner called "Podium Sport" and they were an autorised dealer. I wish i could find my BMX back. was so cool with the nice tubing shapes. i loved it.
