hello :]

Hello I'm Jon, but you can call me J-Two haha. I work in Milpitas and live in San Jose. I'm just a short filipino guy that likes to have a good time :] I kinda used to ride BMX's but I'm slowly getting into this whole fixed gear thing. One of my workers used to be a cyclist and gave me his old nishiki(atleast thats what he said it was) road bike that I plan on painting and converting it.

can anyone confirm if my current bike is a nishiki or not? also are my wheels tubular?

Welcome to the forums!

Don't you trust the guy who gave you the bike to be honest???

Seriously though, with that picture, it might be hard to get an identification, but if you head over the Classic & Vintage, there might be someone who could help you out. Also they could guide you to what details to look for.
