    old Nishiki?

    I recieved a Nishiki bike from a lady today that had bikes piled in her yard. I removed the bikes for free because I knew that Nishiki was in it. It is a Black framed bike with white seat tube abd forks. It is the 27 in wheel style and I cannot find "nishiki" on the net. I would like to get more specs on the bike. I looked all over and cannot seem to find a year of make. If anyone has any info for me I would appreciate it. I know tha tRaleigh now owns Nishiki but other than that I am at a standstill .

    Maybe a picture, if you don't get many responses you could try the Classic & Vintage forum.

    You might be able to identify the year the bike was built based on the components (i.e., cranks, front & rear derailluers, brakes, etc.). Give www.vintage-trek.com a vist and click on "Component Dates". Posting that information, along with the picture and frame number (underneath side of the bottom bracket) in the Classic & Vintage forum should lead to some feedback.

    P.S. I just went through this same exercise with my 1980(ish) Nishiki frame and was very impressed with all the knowledgable help I recieved. Cheers.
