I keep considering the Varsity from time to time. It's only problem is that it is too tall. That Nishiki is my size and I've done some research as to removing that front freewheel junk. You only have to pull the crank arms and the whole thing comes off with it. I have another Japanese roadster of maybe the same brand that is a 25" which is useless to me. It has a similar crankset with a single ring and no front freewheel so hopefully it would be a matter of switching crank arms from one to another.

My ultimate goal is to create something that looks like that State Bicycles Delfin which I think is gorgeous in that pale turquoise color. My wheels aren't like the Delfin's but then beggars can't be choosers. The guy with the Nishiki frame still has it. I'm not surprised about it still being for sale. I'm working on a day to go see it.
