help me identify my road bike

hello,

alright so i found a circa 1990 nishiki men's 58cm custom sport, sport series for $70 and i thought that woud be a good deal. so i went over to the guys house and everything was in good condition and i got it for $65.

i am now just curious about what year this bike could be. i tried looking on google images and stuff but no one seems to have any record on the bike.

also how much do u think i could resell this bike for?

here are the pics could some1 maybe help me identify what year it is. Also the paint job is a dark green and silver

If you think the components are original, check the date codes with vintage-trek.com and it will give you a good idea about the age of the bike.

You are probably right about the approximate age based on the aero brake levers and general looks. If it all works well, it sounds like you got a good deal on it.
