    Hello from Lexington, KY

    Hi,
    I am new to the forum and looking forward to connecting with some interesting info. I have been riding and off and on racing since 14 yrs old (now 40). Recently gotten back on the road as the kids are getting older. Used to be a hammer head, now just happy to be on the road and riding regularly.

    Cheers!
    Micah

    Hello Micah! Do you still have your racing bike, and simply slow down?

    East Hill,

    I have the first bike I put together (Nashiki Maxima) and just sold a Bottechia with Campy Chorus. Last year I put together a Colnago Dream Hx with Campy Record. The new bike is great! and it is great to be back riding consistently.

    Could we see some photos of the Maxima? The Colnago Dream would be nice to see as well.

    Pics of the Nishiki Maxima & Colnago

    Here are a couple of decent pics of the Nishiki Maxima. I have a mix of components, suntour superbe pro brakes, cyclone rear derailure, campy downtube shifters, campy crank and front derailure, sugino seat post, campy hubs with super champion gentlemen 81 rims. The frame has engraved fork crown and campy dropouts.

    No, but T-Mar in the Classic & Vintage forum might be able to help you out. I love Nishikis, and have ummmm.....four or five of them!

    Nishiki Pro
    Nishiki International
    Nishiki Olympic 12
    Nishiki Prestige

    And I've had a couple of Nishiki Sports mixtes as well!
