First post, so thank you for the welcome! A kind neighbor gave me a 1977 Nishiki that her son owned, in hopes it would get ridden again. This bike has been in storage since 1990, so it really needs some love. My plan is to turn it into a gravel-grinder, with MTB cranks, and bars. Still plenty to do, but more pictures will be up soon as I have finally secured all the parts I need to finish.
