You won't fall of while shifting, down tube shifters are easy to use. Glad you have taken an interest in your dad's Nishiki, sounds like a nice rider to me. Others with intimate Nishiki knowledge will be along to fill you in and ask for a lot of pictures, drive side out, clear as possible and in front of a clean background. I'd do a re-cable, grease every bearing and replace the tires/tubes with fresh goods. enjoy a good bicycle and your dad will be proud to say his daughter is riding his old bike.
