Thank ya, according to that it appears to be a 1979. The setup is still kinda confusing though, as this wouldn't make a very good touring bike. It does make for a very nice road bike though.

Need help identifying Nishiki Continental

I just picked up what I thought was a 70s Nishiki Continental Touring bike, but now I'm having doubts. I can't find any reference to the Continental prior to 1983, and for a tourer its a pretty...

Opinions on first gen Suntour XC?

So I've never seen anything like this before, but the fork still rebounds really well, so I'd like to use it. Is it safe?

Actually I think the wheel was built up "wrong". The hub and rim are in opposing directions, at least relative to the back wheel. I haven't touched it much since purchasing it from the original owner.

GT Bravado LE - A cardinal sin?

So I'm not a big GT person, but I managed to get my hands on a cheap, mint 1993 Bravado LE in (I think) the team colours. I was planning on stripping it and repainting as I'm not a fan of the...
