Nishiki had good quality control. They made a whole range of bikes, from the rather basic, with heavy-ish frames and components, to some very nice, lightweights with some excellent fittings.

<edit> I was under the impression that they ceased manufacturing quite a number of years ago. I would ask the seller what model year the bike is from.

Thanks guys, I tried their website, but my Nordic language skills are non-existent.

But apparently they don't routinely distribute to the US any more.
squegeeboo, I'd think it's definitely worth a look. The bike has to be worth a good deal more than the seller is asking.

Expect it to be older--the seven-speed tells me that. It's certainly worth a look. I see lots of them around on the street.
