Women's Vista Summit

Hi I recently acquired a Vista Summit women's road bike and was wondering if anyone had any information on the bike or even Vista in general. Up until now I had never heard of Vista.

The bike itself is in superb condition with only one little ding, and no scratched paint or rust. It looks to be from around the late 70's to mid 80's but i haven't checked the numbers on the components. The components are all suntour and in great working order.

It looks like it was designed to compete with Schwinn and looks a good deal like a Nishiki model I saw the other day. It is a nice solid bike but not near as heavy as other bikes like it I have seen. I payed $65 on it and any info would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry I don't have a picture of it right now. I might try and add one later.

Thanks

The Vistas I have seen are department store/discount store bikes from the bike boom. Limited value. Ride it and enjoy, at $65, you couldn't buy a bike at Walmart.
