Nifty Nakamura

I thought these people only made mountain bikes but my wife found this bright light lime green / royal blue Nakamura racer on a local buy 'n' sell (packaged with a tiny white Bianchi Strada LX).

The listing of the bikes didn't even mention them by name and the pictures were fuzzy, but I think she did OK.

Off chance but I'm trying to compile some information about these bikes.

Does this bike have any branding besides the nakamura head tube badge?

If you're ok with it what is the serial number and where is it located?

I have a thread where I'm trying to compile information over here:

I doubt that Binky still has this bicycle, as he's primarily a flipper.This one should be early 1990s based on 7 speed Shimano 105SC. However, please note how this bicycle emphasized my points your Nakamura thread. The headset is not 105SC, nor are the bottom bracket and pedals. The shift levers may be the cheaper option, depending on the exact year, as STI came out for this group in 1993.

Nakamura is not a name I'm familiar with. But, looks like a really sweet ride. What kind of tube set does it have? Also, I don't know what kind of hack you used to post pictures but, it makes my operating system crawl.
