87 Nishiki Olympic 12 Fixed

Got this bike in trade for a frame that was too small for me. Mostly original. Wish it still had the original drivetrain. Not a fan of the color and want to paint, but the finish is not bad and may be desirable to another. Not sure of the saddle model, but I love it! Worth the trade by itself.

Nice conversion, looks ace. But I'd change the tape.

Black tape would match well. But it depends on your preference when it comes to that. Cork,leather etc. I'd say Brook England leather tape in black would look good, but it's expensive. Over here it's around £40 GBP ~ Al.

P.S: I'm building a conversion myself, check my bike out.
