    Nishiki Colorado

    Hello,

    I was hoping someone could provide some information on a Nishiki Colorado bicycle I purchased in a garage sale. The bike appears to have had minimal use and was just sitting in storage. I replaced the Nishiki seat with a padded shock absorbing seat. However, I kept the original seat in the event I ever wish to sell the bike.

    The serial number is 4130. Below the number is says "Chrome-Moly" and "Main Tubes". Any information would be most appreciated.

    Thanks

    There is a number on the bottom where the peddals connect to the body, 5125128 and just beneath that number is G0485

    Does this help?

    Thanks.

    Interesting. So, this bike was manufactured in Taiwan by Giant for Nishiki?
