The wife and I were babysitting at a friend's house. I was locking all the doors after putting the kiddies to bed, and while in the garage, I spy an old road bike leaning up in the corner. I pull it out and wipe off the cobwebs.
Its a mid-eighties Nishiki Century, judging by the paint scheme. Its a white frame with a "Nishiki performance equipe" decal. There is a "4130 CR-MO seat tube" decal and two on the front fork that say "1020 Hi Tensile steel".
It's got Suntour stuff on it, but it would make a great fixie, with it's frame (just my size) and horiz dropouts. The owner is out of town until Tuesday, maybe he'll throw in the bike in exchange for the babysit/housesit we're doing...
Sorry for the long post, I'm just excited about this lucky find... could be my first fixed-gear project bike.
...wish I had photos to show you... but really, should I be excited? Is this a good frame? I don't really know anything about it...
