Well, I just paid $5.00 for a nice, garaged-for-a-score-of-years Nishiki "Olympic Royale" at the Harrison, Ohio, Goodwill store... yeah, it's a double-butted cro-moly frame with center-pull brakes (and an additional arch between the seatstays for the rear brake cable), Suntour GT ders (with Suntour GT dropouts), a Super Maxy crankset, and (the main reason I bought the bike) ratcheting Suntour barcons (in great condition... woohoo!). So... does anybody want to guess what this model sold for originally?
