You did a first rate job of giving an old bike a new lease on life. Way to go.
It's true that the Century is the initial, entry level model for Nishiki, but you must take into consideration that Nishiki didn't turn out any junk. Actually, your bike frame was manufactured by Giant, hence the G on the right drop out. I had a 83 Century pass through my hands a couple of years ago. It was a nice rider. I sold it on CL for $70. It lasted about one day. The guy who got it just wanted a Nishiki, didn't care what model, as long as it was a Nishiki.
