Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Word of advice: no one will help you unless you post a picture. Your info is too general.

There are a few issues with identifying your bike. For starters, your current description of the bike has described the majority of bikes from that time period. More info is needed; for example, if you can find any branding on any of the components (if they are stock) or anything as such. But even more than that, a picture can, usually, be a great deal of help.

Nishiki also had a model that was called International. You really need to supply a lot more detail to get any meaningful help on this, a picture would be even more helpful.

Agreed. But (despite the silly stage props) they were a force to be reckoned with on the ...And Justice for All tour.

I still do! And the Creeping Death picture disc, original Garage Days Re-revisited ($5.98 ep), Ride the Lightning, and Master Of Puppets...all on vinyl.

My record collection is quite ridiculous, though. It pretty much needs its own room.

All I have left is a picture disc. It should be worth something when Lars dies.

It's a terrible thing to say, but I really wish they would get wasted and fight again. The music was much better then.

does your bike have two wheels? is it made of a tangible or intangible material? does the drivetrain run on real or imaginary ratios?

Uh, dude...it is both made of and runs on Metallica. The obvious matter at hand is determining whether or not we're talking about old Metallica or new Metallica.

I have the DVD, as well as Cunning Stunts. If you watched them both, you might think that aliens abducted Metallica and replaced them with some emo wussies.

Seriously. Unfortunately, it even kinda tainted the old records for me.

Deshi - Let's at least make this a thread about Metallica and cats.
