Here's my Nishiki Prestige.

I found the frame about 6 months ago when I was trying to sell an aluminum Cannondale (ugh!). When a guy came looking at the Cannondale I told him I was looking for an older steel frame and he mentioned he had a Nishiki that he'd bought in the late 80s as a spare frame that he was thinking about selling. It sounded good, so I asked if I could take a look. The bike was still in it's original box with bubble wrap on it! I bought it and built it up using some parts I had lying around and also some new and unused older stuff from the LBS and Rivendell. It gets ridden all around town, some light trail riding, and weekend rides around the lake. The Seattle to Portland ride is coming up, which will be it's first long ride (about 200 miles).

Specs: Bars:
44 cm Nitto Dream
Stem: 9 cm Nitto Technomic Deluxe
Levers: Cane Creek SCR-5
Brakes: Tektro long reach
Front and Rear derailleurs: Shimano 105
