1987 Nishiki Prestige

I have a 1987 20" Nishiki Prestige that is in excellent condition. I bought in new, put on a new seat and I think made it an 18 up from a 12 speed. I would like to trade the bike in on a Hybrid but have absolutely no idea of it's value as a trade in. Or, would I be better off to sell it outright?

Kawamura, Tange #2, just like mine. Except way smaller. And mine is a nice silver/gray fade. And I bought mine in 1987 as a frame/fork only, and built it up with Superbe Pro/Sprint bits. Great bike - I rode the crap out of it, and then my dad rode the crap out of it. Still have it; won't ever sell it.


As a trade-in, I think you'd be lucky to get a benjy out of it. It's just not what "normal" cyclists are into these days.
