Hello Bike Forums! I just purchased a vintage Nishiki Marina last Wednesday and I have been riding since! I feel like it's a great beginner bike for myself and I can't wait to upgrade it's components. Since 2010 I transformed my lifestyle and lost a total of 85lbs. I was nearing 300lbs at a very young age and I am glad to say i'm maintaining an active lifestyle while enjoying myself very much. Glad to have stumbled upon these forums and I hope to learn a lot from the community.
Here's a picture of my purchase. Very pleased with how it handles for it's age.
