American Eagle was the forerunner to Nishiki in the USA, imported by the late West Coast Cycle Supply. I saw a few of them in the 60's, they were very basic at the time, kind of like a lugged Schwinn Varsity w/o the abuse margin. The Brand did better when they were willing to admit their Japanese roots.
Yeah, I know about the name change and everything. I'm mainly just trying to figure out WHICH American Eagle it is, or how much it would be worth... Kind of in need of money right now and I think I'd rather try to sell that than my Raleigh Technium right now haha.
