Makin' room.

For sale early 80's Nishiki Cresta Touring machine. Excellent condition. Looks new. Completely stripped down, gone through and overhauled; fresh grease, cables and housing......the bike looks like it's right off the show room floor. It helped that it only had MAYBE 100 miles on it when I got it.


57 x 57 measured center to center 4130 I think straight gauge tubing. Hand crafted by Kawamura. All decals 99 percent perfect. Beautiful light blue with dark blue contrasting head tube. Sugino RT triple crank with 52/42/30 chainrings MKS Touring pedals NOS 27 x 1 1/4" wheels with Sunshine hubs, Araya rims 36 hole Suntour perfect 6 speed freewheel. (stock freewheel was a 5 speed) New Continental tires SR fluted 26.4 seat post Original Avocet Touring I saddle Dia Compe 986 cantis with Dia Compe levers and the very cool q.r. hangers front and rear Suntour Mountech front and rear derailleurs, Suntour Power shifters on downtube Very nice flat crown fork with "N" cast into either side of crown. Flat engraved "Nishiki" seat stay caps Double threaded eyelets front and rear. Three water bottle mounts Zefal HP pump on seat tube NOS add on SKS silver fenders NOS add on New Nitto noodle bar, bar wrap and Technomic 8 cm deluxe stem ( I can swap out a longer stem if desired) Stock rear rack

I have $400 into it, so I'd like to get at least that much for it. I realize it may seem high, but this bike is very nice. I built it up for my son, but he decided he wanted something else. hmph

I have many photos of the bike, so don't hesitate to ask. Shipping at cost and of course packed very well.

If you have read this far, thank you.
