New waters

Picked up a late 80’s/early 90’s Nishiki today, from another Vintage Bike Addict named Lance in the Tri-Taylor hood. My first mixte frame ever. I’ve mostly eschewed the mixte in the past, due to lower re-sale value, but we’ll see. I bought it with a particular buyer in mind — hopefully she pulls through. If not, I have a vision for a single speed conversion– white Alex DA22 wheelset + purple origin8 crankset = oolala. As-is it’s a great bike. Very light for a mixte multispeed– all chromoly, good condition, nitto stem, index shifting, new tubes/tires.
