    Nishiki MTB - what did I find?

    I found this Nishiki @ the thrift store yesterday for $20. It was my size and I recognized the Brand, so I snapped it up. I'm pretty sure its not anything special, but wanted to get some opinions before I decide what role it plays in the herd.

    Shimano SIS stuff throughout, 6 speed, with Araya rims. Has a "4130 Cro Mo Seat Tube" Sticker on well, the Seat tube. The fork is marked with "1020 Hi Tensile Steel Fork". Has "Nishiki Mountain Project" on the downtube and "Blazer" on the Top Tube. Front rim is a QR, while the rear is a bolt on axel.

    Nothing spectacular, judging by the materials and components. Either way, not bad for 20 bucks. I'd hold on to it.

    Thanks guys.

    I'm going to have to strip it down and re-lube everything before I can ride it. Maybe replace a few parts. Hell, the brakes didn't even work when I test rode it.
