A recent purchase from Mr.K

1989 Nishiki Cascade F&F - specifically designed for the taller gent, Tange DB cromo - very light for its size and some very elegant rear stays.



should look like this:

some uncanny coincidences:

1: frame originally sold in Cambridge, MA - I'm near Cambs, UK

2. frame would have had Mountain LX - guess what I've got a box of waiting to go on it...

3. they're just coincidences, nothing should be read into it. 'They' are NOT out to get me, I simply overheard them talking about it.
