Deal of the day (new Nishiki)...

Customer came in today with a mint Nishiki Riviera touring bike, a large size frame (60cm+?) and wanted to know if anyone was interested. As the only 35" inseam in the house I got the bike for $75. Full Suntour LaPree, Tange Infinity tubing, lugged frame, crown lugged fork, full braze-ons, Dia-Compe canti's (which will probably be changed out soon for a set of NOS Tektro's I have). I find it funny that a bike this size still has a 38 or 40cm bar. I'm a small guy 6'1 and 150lbs, and its still way too narrow for me. Thankfully I have a vintage 44cm somewhere. Anyways I'll try to get pics.
