oh, that's lovely. really like the brown on that frame and those tyres look good on that. you should consider a brown saddle and grips to go! ;)

looks like i have the same fork as you but in white. really like the look of it, and was curious to know where it original came off of, now i do. it's currently not on a Nishiki as you can see. :roll:


very similar to an ms racing fork , also the 90 cro-mega dx/xt fork
does it have spinner embossed in the drop-out ?

That is nice, the snow flake wheels look spot on but I would be tempted to put an all silver group set on it and definitely no silly anodized bits, it looks like a proper grown ups bike. 8)

nope, checked and no "spinner" stamped on the drop-outs. does it make a difference… is one better than the other? the tubing details on my white forks looks to be the same as on the brown nishiki.

Just checked the dropouts on the Nishiki fork. It is stamped 'lung'....?

Doesn't ring a bell....!?!

Looking very nice, your doing a great job with it. I would treat the bike to a nicer stem though may a silver controltech stem and seat post. :lol:

Frame looks virtually unused? :? My own opinion is that it deserves a few better parts, chain rings would be much better machined than pressed and poss a better crankset than the Jap' WB, US ones, would look nicer?
Bet it's a really smooth ride? 8)
