'90 Nishiki Ariel - XT/DX groupset with M900 rear hub and 8 speed cassette (yes, the magical 7th click on the XT thumbies DOES actually work!)

Image
NOS (un-ridden) '90 Alien ACX - Full M732/735 XT (this is my baby)

Image
'91 Alien ACX - M900 XTR throughout (with SR Sakae rings) & RS-1

Image
Sorry about the image quality (or lack there-of). Took the photos today with my phone.

I had the exact same one as the Black ACX, got stolen! :evil:
Drove it with a Lawill Leader fork,..what a machine it was.
I still have the original Chrome fork ,..that looked also amazing,..

Always fancied an elevated chainstay Nishiki. Ever since MBUK did some sort of street trials article with a white one. Anyone remember that, or got a scan? :D
