Just picked up a '78 Nishiki International. Thought I'd share my new sweet ride! =)

So, I just picked this bike up for $65. Bought it off the original owner who knows his bikes. So, it was well taken care of. If anyone has any fun facts about these bikes, I'd love to hear them.

I posted some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy!

Your bike looks just like my competition, same paint and decals. They are Japanese bikes of solid construction which ride well. I dont think there is much more that can be said for them.

Very nice. The 1st generation Cyclone stuff works really well, and the frame looks like it's in extremely good shape. Very well equipped, reasonable stuff. Good buy.
