Returning to bicycling after >30 years. found this bike at a garage sale and it FIT ME. That's a first! i'm short. Had it hanging in barn for last 10 years. i see a serial number of B13089 at the base of the frame near the pedal gear. This coding does not match anything i'm seeing about Nikishi serial numbers. Any help on year this was build would be nice. It does have a "JAPAN" sticker on the frame tube above the pedal axle. As i am brand new to biking, i don't know what is original and what is not. i'll be taking to a shop to have it checked out and estimate cost to recondition what is here. Where does one find out how to be self sufficient in fixing/repair on these things? i have tons to learn. Help in where to start would be greatly appreciated.
just call me menopausal short ****.
