    Very nice . I've found some Nishiki from that era in the past , mostly Internationals , and with a lot of paint wear issues, like those Japanese bowls from times past.

    It turned out pretty well. Just some spots in the clear coat that go to the paint. But other than that it's prerety good for 31 years old.

    It sure is .It always amazes me how nice some old bikes can look . One I found, a 1969 Schwinn Continental , was showroom new . It even had the little vinyl covers on the wirends . My muchposted Ross Signature looked like 1985 as well. All I did was clean it and change tires and tubes . And it had a lot of miles , according to the owner .

    Really liked your video on the Nishiki Sebring.

    Thanks for sharing it.

    I picked up a Sebring last year...looks to be about the same year as yours.

    Was too small and I sold it to a fellow who turned it into a fixie.
