    80's nishiki, what components do you see?

    im no expert on Japanese components but as the price of this bike is cheap and since i will be in that direction I might just pick it up.


    if you look at the link and click on the picture it will get bigger.


    What components on this? is it worth 30-40 euros?

    From that pick I can't see enough to determing the exact level of the components BUT, that's a braze-on downtube shifter bike and the crank has no pants protector on the chainwheel. Those two indicates at least a lower mid-level bike, maybe higher. BEfore you buy, check to be sure the stem and seatpost are not frozen in the frame/steertube. If all is good, 30-40E is a pretty good price for that bike. In the US it could bring $100 just cleaning it up, more if completley rebuilt.

    I think it might be old Dura Ace. Crankset is definitely Shimano 600 or Dura Ace, they looked very similar from a distance. Rear derailleur looks like a Crane, which was the Dura Ace level derailleur at the time. If it was a full arabesque group, it would have the arabesque rear dr. Hard to tell from the angle what the sidepulls are, but if I had to bet, I would say dura ace before 600 arabesque. Looks like a very nice quality ride.

    Finland is FULL of Nishiki bikes, for some reason I would like a set of Shimano 600 Arbusque components.

    this bike has clearly been outside for sometime by looking at the chain.
    note the FD is not aligned anymore. hope the cranks are OK
    well the pedals look nice!

    I see nice crankset and some better vintage MKS maybe Campy pedals. What looks like better shimano shifter group and brakes. This bike should be worth a closer look.

    no test, im just bored and started searching-learning.
    I most likely will offer no more then 40€ for it.

    part it up, sell the frame for 25€ and keep the bits.

    we will see next week.
