1987 Nishiki Prestige for $90?

Ad says it "needs work". I haven't looked at it yet. Mentions specialized pedals. Not really a Nishiki guy so I'm not sure what they're worth or going for in a tuned-up ready-to-ride condition.

Can you post larger pictures... can't see or tell anything about the bike. I tend to like nishiki's and $90 isn't bad depending on what work it needs. Do you know what components it has. I would go buy it and offer $75. A decent road bike for under $100 does not last long in my area.

I have this same bike and it is a great road bike and a deal at that price. It is a Tange 2 frame and was equal to my Centurian LeMans with a similar Japanese Tange 2 frame. I wouldn't hesitate at this price for the frame alone.

I've emailed the guy to see if I can get some higher res photos. I'm at work at the moment and won't get a chance to look at it.

My guess is it might be gone... I would just tell him you want to take a look... if it is tange 2 that is a nice frame and will likely have good components. Do you want to this bike to keep or to flip?

Probably a flip. I've been acquiring a lot of bikes lately.

Watch out, you are getting the N+1 sickness, not that there is anything wrong with that.
