This is my first post here, Im from Scandinavia, Europe.
I ride bicycles all year round also daily during winter season with temperatures somtimes reaching below - 20 degrees Celsius
I just won an internet auction for an old Nishiki bike, hopefully this one will be my new summerseason bike.
To be honest I mostly bid on the bike because it was in my favourite colour, burgundy red I do like the looks of 1970 and early eighties bikes because they have that special "vintage feeling"...
The seller however have stated the bike to be in very good condition with very few hours of use. He told me he bought the bike new in 1982. I dont even know any model name or number for the bike. Seller told me the "frame" (dont know the proper word for it in english) is a TOSHIBA 150, is that good or bad ?
Hoping to receive, the bike in a week or so, maybe I post some better pics when its here.
These enclosed pics are from sellers ad.
Maybe someone can identify the bike/model from the pics ?? I would really like to know something more about the bike and also Nishiki bikes in general of this vintage. I dont expect this bike to be anything special though... I guess its just an ordinary "touring bike" (?)
