nishiki was a concocted brand name of Western States Imports. there was no 'nishiki' factory... similar to takara, shogun, maruishi (i think), centurion, and currently torelli, quatro assi, specialized, etc. that is: these are brands made up by importers, marketers, and the like. e-RICHIE http://www.richardsachs.com
