I remember the ride being a little sloppy, owing mostly to inferior components and fiddly shifting. Regardless, at that price you could do better for your first C/V bike. I'd consider it more of a novelty for someone's collection, unless you're the type of person who prefers to have something a little more unique. If you're keen on it, you might offer $100 or $125 and see what the seller says - depending on the market in your area, $200 seems a little high.

I DO like things a bit wierd/different, but I'll also be riding this bike, at least occasionally, not just hanging it up somewhere. But man it is a sweet looking bike

Seller claims it was built in Chicago, but the Legacy Frameworks in Chicago doesn't build anything like this. Help?


Not sure why the seller claims Chicago built. This doesn't look like anything special to me. With cantis, looks like a 90's frame. I suspect far east manufacture, perhaps Kinesis in Taiwan, contract build for some other importer?

Looking at that goofy crankset, I've got to agree.

Seller probably googled "Legacy bicycles" and came across Legacy Frameworks - which is a handbuilt custom shop in Chicago - and didn't read any further.

This is starting to look like a dept. store BSO to me...

Looks to be in nice shape.

I would go take a look if I hadn't brought home a Super Course earlier this week.

Step up from BSO. Just a lowend mtb, probably $325 or so MSRP.

A company called Legacy had a couple of two-wheel-drive models in the early '90s, maybe this is their RWD bike. Not sure what the whole story is behind the company. For some reason I get a Canadian feeling when thinking about them.

Here's one of the AWD rigs:

Wow, now I've seen everything... Just stick a worm-gear on there with a heavy-duty zip-tie and call it AWD. Yikes!

Okay, thanks for the info, now I can do some real digging.

Thought these two were interesting:

I've seen this model in real life, and I really liked it.


I don't know anything about this brand, but it looks interesting. It's local, and they said I could pick it up if needed, so I figure that would give someone in this area an $80 advantage...

go make an offer. it also just depends upon your money situation... is it with a bit more just because its rare and super cool looking? In my book, yes. Get it and swap out the components to something a little crisper, and it would be a very sweet and unique ride!

Schwinn Crosspoint

Schwinn Crosspoint F/F/HS on ebay. Sorry, can't post a pic right now but it's the only one there if you do a search.

Frame looks to be in nice shape. I would get the seller to remeasure the seat tube as the 55cm/21.65" doesn't seem accurate. They were 19,21,or 23 inch frames.

$160 shipped or $190 bin shipped is a little high but they are great 4130 DB frames, very underrated. The Crosspoint was a one year only model.

This one's been relisted several times always at the same price and I've contacted the seller in the past and they are not willing to relist at a lower start price.

Crosspoint/Crosscut/Crisscross all had the exact same frame for several years with just different groupset and paint. If I had to cut back to just one bike it would be my Crosscut.

The paint job dates it to late 80s, it is very similar to my Fiori. I've often suspected that Norco had the Fiori bikes made by the same factory as Nishiki.

That 2WD bike doesn't have a differential, does it? What happens when the wheels need to go at different speeds?

Nishiki Prestige ~1985, 5'5"-5'11" - $120 (Hopkinton)










condition: excellent

model name / number: Prestige
more ads by this user

An awesome, classic bike. Very low miles, great for a flat-bar conversion, commuting, or owning a classic piece. Downtube shifters are still smooth. Bar tape is crisp. Wheels are true and pedals clips still hold fast. Bike has been stored indoors for it's whole life, ridden very little, and is just being sold to free up space. Tires are okay, will soon need replacement. ~25in reach (center of seat to handlebar), ~32 in standover, ~21 in seatube. Good for someone about 5'9", give or take about 4 inches. Text is okay, email is preferred. Sale includes frame mounting pump, in matching colors. Bikes front tire blew out (both were very old) so will be sold without a front tire.
