That was the "Maxima" model. I bought a 61 cm. one in about 1983, purchased it new (bare frame and fork) at Patio Bike Shop in Hales Corner, Wisconsin. A nice blue color, with mostly cheapo yellow vinyl stickers but a nice head tube decal. Flat fork crown, very Colnago-ish details (no surprise there). Mine was mostly SP due to its size. I sold it to a good friend, and I've offered to buy it back if he ever decides to sell it. It rides quite nicely. Greg Parker Ann Arbor, Michigan

Nishiki sold a frameset built by Colnago that was Columbus SL tubing. I forget the name. Sold for about $229 wholesale in approx. 1981-9182
