The powder coat looks real nice!

I have to guess. Is the frame a Nishiki Colorado?

I had a Richard Cunningham Design Nishiki Colorado back in the day - I sure wish I wouldn't have given it away. I keep wondering what type of a touring/commuter it would have made.

What's the chain stay length?

Keep us informed how it goes. I'm thinking about doing the same thing, mtb to tourer buildup, in January.
