^^^^^ The Nishiki should be in Wacky World
* Depiction of two different bikes
* God-awful photos of the actual bike presumed to be up for sale
* Even with the god-awful photos, it's obvious this "fixie" has derailleurs, shifters and multiple gears

Not sure where you got that idea.

edit: I thought that you meant that the bike was beat.

The bike is in NW MI where Covid19 reports are low.

Sorry, didn't mean to be obtuse, just hate that the original center of the automotive universe (to me) has been gutted and so many families that helped build all that are lucky to survive at all only to end up fighting this scourge for another epic battle that may be even more devastating.

I feel for them if they are liquidating, I could very well end up wishing I hadn't just spent a ton on my latest.

Tourism is the major economic force in that part of the state. So at this particular time, yeah, they're gonna be hurting.

That said, the seller shouldn't lean on the brand name to expect $500, posting with near ZERO info about the rest of the bike.

Oh wow!

Glad that the seller actually posted some measurements! I've never seen any info about these like this before.

I'm thinking that even though they list the top tube as 59cm, the effective length would be quite a bit shorter. Would that make sense?

That is nice, but Richmond is 4.5 hours away and we can't leave our jurisdiction without a legitimate reason.

Yes, but perhaps the owner is out of a job right now due to the pandemic, Bill. Our local McDonald's closed, so that's just an indicator of tough times now, and worse ahead.

Well, if it is still there after the crisis is over, maybe I can facilitate. I go to Fredericksburg on business every 2-3 weeks.

I just find it quite curious that y'all chose that posting to speculate on the seller's motive and immediately assumed it must be Covid-19. While this has not occurred with any other posting of any other bike. I just figured it was a good deal on a 30 year old Waterford.
