One of the guys at work rides a SS as his commuter bike. He told me that if I came across any old lugged frames that they would make a great SS, as his is a Nishiki and works great. Today I was riding back to the office after being out working on a computer and rode by a house that had 2 bikes sitting out front, I could tell one was a beach cruiser and the other an older road bike, I caught a quick glimpse but no details. Since I was heading to do another job real quick, after getting back to the office I mentioned it to him and asked if he would go with me to check it out. We got over there and it was a Nishiki Century, lugged frame from around the mid 80s. Frame was in decent condition, some surface rust, but nothing crazy bad. I decided to buy the bike for $10 and turn it into a SS and have this bike at work for our lunch rides. I will get some pictures of the frame up and then post some pictures when it is completed.
