Not sure what Im going to do with it. Maybe give it to a niece to try out some singletrack, or swap some components out and keep it for my oldest when she is bigger, or just sell it come spring.

I bought it partly because I saw some options on what to do with it, partly because its ridiculously clean after 20 years, and partly because I hadnt seen a late 90s Nishiki made in the US before. Figured at worst Ill just sell it for what I paid come spring.

I saw you are the proud owner of that 80s Stumpy which was listed without tires and a seatpost or saddle! That looked like it has some looooong chainstays.
