Got this on ebay Sunday. Some of you might have seen it. Tange 1, front deraileur braze-on, brake cable routed through top tube. Just never seen a Nishiki rigged out like that. If anyone has any info about this particular model or Nishiki in general, please enlighten me. Here are a few ebay pics.

If the Sante parts are original equipment, then it's from 1988 or 1989. However, going by the presence of other earlier Shimano parts (headset, cranks etc.), then the Sante bits are a later upgrade. I would say 1986 or 1987. T-Mar is the man to consult for these matters; his serial number spreadsheet should help you out.
1987 Nishiki Tri-A Equipe. $750 US MSLP. 600EX brakes and crankset mated to Sante shifting system is OEM, as are the Look Sport pedals. I'd appreciate it if the OP would post the serial number for my database. TIA.
